Want to hear (and hopefully see) American Woodcocks peenting and possibly displaying?
The Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society are holding a free bonus walk next Monday (March 18) at Laurel Hill in Secaucus.
We'll meet in the ballfields parking lot at Laurel Hill at 6:45 p.m., or you can meet in DeKorte Park's visitor's parking lot and follow the NJMC's Jim Wright — he'll be leaving DeKorte promptly at 6:15 p.m. The walk should end a little after dusk. Dress for the weather — it can get especially cold and windy along the river!
We will also look for the Laurel Hill ravens, the Black-crowned Night Herons and any other interesting birds we can find.
Directions to Laurel Hill are on the left-hand side of this blog.
Check meadowblog.net for last-minute weather updates. You will have to sign a standard liability release that is good for NJMC/BCAS events throughout the year (if you haven't done so already). To rsvp, contact Don Torino of the BCAS at firstname.lastname@example.org or 201-230-4983.
(And a thanks to Chris Takacs for the Woodcock photo above!)
