Tuesday’s Walk, with Full List

We had a great final guided walk of the year yesterday morning, with nine duck species (but no Ruddies), nice looks at a male Bufflehead, and — appropriately  — a (distant) Bald Eagle for the last bird of the year.

To all who joined us on a walk this year, thank you!

To all who have yet to join us, what are you waiting for? We'll post the entire 2012 schedule in early January.

Happy Holidays from the Meadowlands Commission and our friends at Bergen County Audubon Society.

Full list follows — thanks to Denise Farrell!
