To get a feel for what we might see in the coming month, we thought we would look back at last year at this time.
Here are some highlights from April 2011:
April 1: Really Unusual Blackbird
April 4: Wilson's Snipe!
April 21: Of Ospreys and Earth Day
April 28: Red-necked Phalarope at DeKorte
April 30: Virginia Rail at DeKorte
Join us on our First-Sunday-of-the-Month walk on April 1 as we look for Great Auks, Passenger Pigeons and Heath Hens at DeKorte Park. We might even see a Dodo (above). Did someone mention that it's April's Fools Day?
Seriously, in the spirit of the occasion, we will be putting some decoys out along the Marsh Discovery Trail, with a valuable prize to anyone who sees up to five and ID's the most correctly. (Keep in mind this is April Fools Day.)
And we will look for some real live wild birds, we promise.
The two-hour walk begins at 10 a.m. inside the Meadowlands Environment Center — please sign in!
