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.
