Bonus Walk: Woodcock and Ravens, Laurel Hill, Thursday


Want to hear (and hopefully see) American Woodcocks peenting and possibly displaying?

The Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society are holding a free bonus walk this Thursday at Laurel Hill in Secaucus.

We'll meet in the ballfields parking lot at Laurel Hill at 5 p.m., or you can meet in DeKorte Park's visitor's parking lot and follow Jim Wright — he'll be leaving DeKorte at 4:30 p.m.

We will also look for the Laurel Hill ravens and any other interesting birds we can find.

Directions to Laurel Hill are on the left-hand side of this blog.

Briefing peenting audio is here (might have to turn up the volume):

Full list from Friday is below — we'll post the list from today's walk tomorrow…
