Jackie [DeMarco] and I walked along the Kearny Marsh this Saturday. It was a 4-hour walk, with over 40 species.
A couple of the highlights included Yellow-throated Warbler, Green Heron, Bald Eagle and more. Here is a shot of the Yellow-throated Warbler.
(Thanks, Allan and Jackie!) According to NJMC Naturalist Mike Newhouse, This is a first for the Meadowlands, bringing our total number of bird species to 283 or 284 (still checking).

We couldn’t have won last year without your support. This season, our team is asking for your help again as the title defense is going to be a real challenge.
The overwhelming support from all of you last year helped us raise enough money to do an overhaul of the Kingsland Overlook Trail. We are in the designing phase right now, and we’ll be planting native plants this spring. Please come out in May to see the trail’s new look.
This year, we have several exciting projects you can contribute to:
* Add another Purple Martin Colony at DeKorte.
* Add more native plants to Harrier Meadow.
* Plant a new native-grass habitat on a nearby closed landfill.
