Meadowlands Christmas Bird Count

1-IMG_2439NJMC Naturalist Mike Newhouse and three of his bird-banding crew participated in the Meadowlands portion of a Christmas Bird Count yesterday.

The photo above was taken in North Arlington, and features swind-swept views of the Saw Mill Creek Wildlife management Area, Laurel Hill and that big town across the Hudson River.

These folks spot birds as well as they band them. We had 61 species in all. Highlights included A Rough-legged Hawk, a Snowy Owl, a Barn Owl and a Snow Snipe.

Full list and raptor pix later this week.
