Harrier Meadow Scouting Report — Trifecta

IMG_8313We did a lunchtime walk in Harrier Meadow on Tuesday as a bit of a scouting trip for Sunday’s free guided walk with Bergen County Audubon Society. Lots of nifty birds, including a female Wood Duck, three Pied-billed Grebes and a Wilson’s Snipe.

Later this week we had a Bald Eagle, Buffleheads, Northern Harriers and more.

Tuesday’s list follows (and we’re sure we missed quite a few).
