The adult Bald Eagle that Mary Kostus saw earlier is still on Disposal Road, perched in a tree. This is about as close as we've ever gotten to one. (Stayed in the car to photograph it and did not flush it.)
Photo above is of an immature Bald Eagle perched on a utility tower just outside DeKorte Park last week. Never had a chance to post, so figured this would be as good a time as any.
Want to get outside and get some exercise before the big game? Don't miss the fourth-annual SuperBird Sunday guided walk, a free event that starts outside DeKorte Park at 10 a.m. on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 3, at 10 a.m.
The two-hour walk, sponsored by the N.J. Meadowlands Commission and Bergen County Audubon Society, includes valuable prizes for the first person to see a bird that an NFL team is named for — Raven, Cardinal, Eagle, Falcon or Seahawk. (Not to worry: legendary birder Bob O'Link, pictured above, will not be on this walk.)
Full details on the event follow.
