A Fitting End to a Great Pontoon-Boat Season

The Meadowlands Commission would like to thank everyone who participated in our 2013 pontoon-boat season. We had our last official cruise DSCN6869-002of the year yesterday evening, with three boats and 30 people. We saw plenty of nifty birds — including these four dozen migrating Semipalmated Sandpipers at River Barge Park, plenty of herons and egrets — great sights and a beautiful sunset.

See you next spring!

Full list of birds that were seen from Boat No. 1 follows.
