Last month, the state DEP released a revised list of birds on New Jersey's Endangered, Threatened and Special Concern lists. For those keeping track at home, we are posting a list of the 34 Meadowlands birds out of the 77 on the state lists, including nearly half of the birds that are on the lists while breeding.
Two birds seen in the Meadowlands and added to the Endangered and Threatened list are the often-seen American Kestrel (above) and the Red Knot (seen rarely).
Full list follows. (A big thank you to NJMC Naturalist Mike Newhouse for putting the list together!)
Holler if you think we missed any. Full lists are here (there's a link on the site to the Special Concern list).
