Wilson’s Snipes @ the Retention Pond

Allan Sanford reports:

I was excited to find these Wilson’s Snipes this week. They were in the Retention Pond on Disposal Road, and pics were taken through the fence.

(Thanks, Allan.  Photographers, please remember to park off the road and look out for traffic when parking on Disposal Road, and steer clear of construction areas.)

Lyndhurst Osprey Is Back — and on Nest

IMG_6944Chris Takacs reports that both he and Jill Homcy have seen an Osprey on the nest on Valley Brook Avenue. Please e-mail Jim Wright at jim.wright@njmeadowlands.gov with any Osprey sightings, particularly involving nesting. Photos are always a plus.

Also getting more reports of Tree Swallows and Greater Yellowlegs, to go with the Great Egret, BC Night Heron and many Killdeer and Red-winged Blackbirds. Spring must be here.

(Thanks, Chris and Jill!)
