See a Cicada? Say Something (To The Record)

Ace environmental reporter Jim O'Neill of The Record writes:

When the 17-year cicadas actually emerge in our North Jersey area, I want to do a follow-up on the story that The Record published last Friday.

If any of you see cicadas, please send me a quick email about how many, location, etc? That would be incredibly helpful.

Given how warm it was today, I'm thinking the soil temp could have gotten pretty close to the magic 64 degrees and we could have them emerge tonight or tomorrow night. Thanks for any help!! My email is oneillj@northjersey.com

Here's a link to Friday's story:


Today’s Mill Creek Marsh Walk

We had a very entertaining walk at Mill Creek Marsh in Secaucus this morning, with 34 species of birds and 22 varieties of human. 

Bird of the day: Eastern Kingbird?

Some shorebirds moving in, and warblers moving out.

Full list later in the week.
