Sunday’s Walk: The Full List

7W0A7798 (3)Had great weather and a great group for Sunday’s Back-To-Football Walks. Four participants each won a high-quality Peter Max Meadowlands poster for beeing the first to see a bird named after an NFL team — Giant (Great) Egret, Giant (Great) Blue Heron, Falcon and Osprey (Seahawk).

One of the highlights was a Merlin that kindly perched nearby. Photo above was by the quick-on-the-trigger Alice Leurck. (Thanks, Alice!)
