DeKorte Park's Meadowlands Environment Center will closed on Monday, Jan. 16. DeKorte Park itself will be open.
Mike Girone reports:
"Still fairly limited raptor action in the area, but Saturday had its moments.
"At least 2 Red-tails (neither was the falconer bird), 2 Northern Harriers (adult female + juvenile), and a bathing adult Sharp-shinned Hawk on Valley Brook Ave. (above).
"The grand finale was at dusk in the vicinity of the Carillon: adult female Peregrine Falcon who made 2 very low passes over Disposal Rd. and the landfill before heading west to roost. As best I could see, she wasn't banded."
We had posted a photo of just the band last week, and thought a shot of the full bird would be neat.
The Great Egret was banded on South Brother Island in the east River in June — roughly 120 miles north-northwest as the Great Egret flies.
