Horned Larks @ Laurel Hill

We were lucky enough to get this shot of the Horned Larks on the Laurel Hill County Park guided walk this morning with the Bergen County Audubon Society. (Thanks to Jackie DeMarco and Mary Kostus for finding the birds!)

For some reason, some folks could not see them without a spotting scope. That's where the digital camera came in handy!

More on Horned Larks here.

Nifty Laurel Hill Walk This A.M. (W/ Horned Larks!)

A very successful Laurel Hill walk this morning, with highlights that included umpteen Horned Larks on the field by XChange Place and roughly 30 roosting Black-crowned Night Herons. Plus a dogfight between a Peregrine and a Red-tail.

We'll post the full list and more pix later this week.  We'll post a Horned Lark shot later today, so stay glued to your browser…

If you were on the walk and would like to be cc'd on the eBird list for the walk, e-mail Jim Wright at jim.wright @ njmeadowlands.gov
