Sunday’s Ridgefield Walk: the Full list


We had a great Mother's Day Walk in Ridgefield, with walks at the Ridgefield Nature Center and Skeetkill Creek Marsh and stops DSCN0159to see the nesting Monk Parakeets (above) and the nesting Bald Eagles.

In all four dozen of us participated in the event, including a budding birder or two (right).

Highlights included five warbler species and those majestic Bald Eagles.

The next event brought to you by the N.JU> Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society is River Barge Park Day this Saturday in Carlstadt. Check this blog for the latest info.
