Whimbrel in Harrier Meadow!

NJMC Naturalist Mike Newhouse spotted a Whimbrel in Harrier Meadow. The bird was still there as of 9:45 a.m.

We think this might be the first Bergen County record for this bird since the mid-1970s.

The commission plans to have an impromptu lunchtime walk at Harrier Meadow for anyone who would like to see the bird between noon and 1 p.m.

Contact Jim Wright at jim.wright (at) njmeadowlands.gov or 201-460-2002 before 11:30 a.m. if you plan on attending. Be sure to bring bug spray!
