Our next guided walk is Tuesday at Harrier Meadow in North Arlington at 10 a.m. With this wacky weather, who knows what we'll see. We did have a couple of Killdeer and yellowlegs there last week, along with tons of Common Mergs and other duckage.
Here's the (snowy) list from our Harrier walk two years ago (not expecting a shrike this year).
Full info on Tuesday's walk — brought to you by the Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society — follows.

Third-Tuesday-of-the-Month Bird Walk with the NJMC and BCAS
This free two-hour guided nature walk will take place at Harrier Meadow in North Arlington, a 70-acre restored wetlands area usually closed to the public. We’ll walk around the site, looking for wintering waterfowl, raptors and other birds. This has been a good spot to see Bald eagles as well. We’ll meet at the entrance to Harrier Meadow at 10 a.m. — or join us in the first parking lot at DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst by 9:40 a.m. and we can carpool. The walk is run by the N.J. Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society. Check meadowblog.net for last-minute weather updates. You will have to sign a standard liability release that is good for NJMC/BCAS events throughout the year. To rsvp, contact Don Torino of the BCAS at firstname.lastname@example.org or 201-230-4983.
