Our next free guided walk is this Sunday at Mill Creek Marsh in Secaucus. Target birds include Bald eagle, Northern Harrier, American Kestrel (we do love our raptors) and lots of duck species, inluding maybe even that elusive Eurasion Teal.
The two-hour walk, brought to you by the Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society, begins at 10 a.m.
Question: Why is this Sunday the most aggressive day of the year?
The answer — and full information on the walk — follows.
Sunday is the day we all "March Fourth." (Old joke, and not a particularly good one.)
Sunday, March 4, 10 a.m.
First-Sunday-of-the Month Walk with the NJMC and BCAS
This free two-hour walk of Mill Creek Marsh features raptors, waterfowl and early spring migrants. We’ll meet at the marsh entrance at 10 a.m. (directions are on meadowblog.net in the left-hand column), or you can also meet us at the visitors’ parking lot at DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst by 9:20 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.
