Tuesday’s Walk

We had a great walk in Harrier Meadow on Tuesday, kicked off with a bird-banding demonstration by the Meadowlands Commission's Mike Newhouse. (Great to see so many new faces and familiar faces!)

Walk highlights included a Blue-winged Teal, a Spotted Sandpiper and lots of raptors.

Full list follows. (Thanks, Denise, for help with the list, and thanks to Marie Longo for the photo!)
