Bald Eagle Report

Mike Britt writes:  "An adult Bald Eagle was at Mill Creek Point earlier this afternoon. I have found that the eagles  in the Hackensack Meadows range as far south as Newark & New York Bays in Bayonne…hunting fish, waterfowl, and gulls."  Interesting to know. (Thanks, Mike!)

Sunday’s Winners

We are pleased to announce that on SuperBird Sunday, we had three winners of N.J. Meadowlands Commission two-hour eco-cruises for two.


The goal was to be the first person on the DeKorte Park guided walk to see a bird that has the same name as an NFL team — falcon, raven, eagle, cardinal or seahawk. To that list of target birds we added Orange-crowned Warbler and American Bittern — two rarities seen in DeKorte Park of late.

Linda Matula and Marie Longo simultaneously saw a Northern Cardinal, and Neil Ellman was the first to spot the Orange-crowned Warbler.

Congrats to all.

The cruises begin in late May. Stay tuned to this blog for more info on our two-hour eco-cruises and the opening of River Barge Park in Carlstadt.
