Woodcocks Are Back, & More

Ray Duffy reports that yesterday:

I had an Eastern Phoebe at Schmidt’s Woods [in Secaucus].  Fox Sparrows and juncos are singing.

I had 1 American Woodcock calling last night at 8:30 at Laurel Hill [in Secaucus] in the woods behind the bathrooms.

(Thanks, Ray!  The Meadowlands Commission and Bergen County Audubon Society are holding a Woodcock Walk next Monday at 6:45 p.m. in Laurel Hill, so it’s great to hear that the woodcocks are returning .)

Directions to Schmidt’s Woods and Laurel Hill are in the right-hand column of this blog.

    Some of us were gathered after dusk on Valley Brook last night watching from afar the reigning Queen of the Meadowlands (our dark snowy female) and we also observed multiple woodcocks displaying and calling at around 7:45 or so near the curve in the road.
