Saw the Marsh Hawks stepping up to the plate at the World Series of Birding this a.m. — just long enough to take this photo.
They could not spare another second in their quest to see/hear as many species as they could in Bergen County today.
Some good news: They already have seen a Black-capped Chickadee, their nemesis bird from 2012.
We will post their entire list, including the chickadee, next week.
Go, Marsh Hawks!
Because of Hurricane Sandy-related electrical repairs, DeKorte Park is closed until approximately 4 p.m. today — even to World Series of Birding participants. The park will reopen in time for the Saturday night concert at the Meadowlands Environment Center. If you need to contact Jim Wright, who maintains this blog, use his home account — wrightjamesb (at) gmail.com.
Valley Brook Ave. also will be closed near DeKorte Park until roughly 4 p.m. as part of the landfill-closure work. Thank you for your patience.
