As a little scouting trip for tomorrow's (Friday's) guided walk at DeKorte, I walked along the Transco Trail and Marsh Discovery at lunch yesterday. Highlights were a Black-crowned Night Heron in the back of the Shorebird Pool and 11 species of duck.
Birders I talked with reported seeing Ruby-crowned Kinglets and the fairly reliable Great Blue Heron. Did not see the Orange-crowned Warbler or American Bittern — please let us know if you do.
Full list follows.
The Meadowlands Commission and Bergen County Audubon Society are offering a free guided bird walk at 10 a.m. tomorrow (Friday) in DeKorte Park.
We’re doing the 90-minute walk in conjunction with the Great Backyard Bird Count, so we’ll try count every bird we see.
We hope to get an unusual bird or two along the way — from American Bittern to Orange-crowned Warbler.
Meet inside the Meadowlands Environment Center. Dress for the weather.
Full details follow.
This week’s “Focus on the Meadowlands” post on the wildnewjersey.tv blog includes the mystery photo above, a full moon, and that Disposal Red-tail with jesses (seen as recently as two days ago).
