Laurel Hill Falcons

IMG_6111-002On a visit to Laurel Hill this week, we saw two Peregrines and an American Kestrel.

One of the Peregrines was perched on the old Common Ravens’ nest (above) yet again.

The American Kestrel (below) was perched on a couple of the ball-field light posts before one of the Peregrines drove it away.

Next time you visit Laurel Hill, don’t forget to check for the Peregrines on the cliffs and Kestrels on the light poles.

(And if you have a spotting scope, might look for a Bald Eagle perched on 1-E landfill across the river and past the Saw Mill Creek Wildlife Management Area. An adult Bald Eagle was perched on a tree on the landfill yesterday afternoon, and is seen there fairly often.)

DeKorte Park Main Entrance Is Closed Today

The main entrance to DeKorte Park will be closed for repaving the remainder of today (Friday). You will be directed to a back entrance on Disposal Road. The Meadowlands Environment Center will close at 2 p.m. today.

On Tuesday, a state holiday, DeKorte Park will also be closed all day for repaving work. Between now and then, theĀ  park’s entrance road will be under construction. Please drive cautiously.
