First Day of Spring Walk: The Full List


The fog lifted just in time for our Third-Tuesday of the month walk with Bergen County Audubon, and the 30 participants


were treated to several great birds, including Red-breasted Mergansers (in the scope), an Orange-crowned Warbler in the Lyndhurst Nature Reserve, and a trio of Belted Kingfishers hot-rodding around the Shorebird Pool.

In all, we had 38 species, not exactly chopped liver.

Thank you to all who attended. It was a terrific morning!

Full list and a couple more pix follow.
