Why fly south when the weather here in the Meadowlands is so nice?
Apparently that’s what a Baltimore Oriole and a pair of Northern Rough-winged Swallows were thinking this weekend. Both species are usually gone from these parts by now, but Jim Macaluso photographed an Oriole while on a Bergen County Audubon Society trip to Mehrhof Pond in Little Ferry on Saturday.
Yesterday Jim captured two Rough-winged Swallows hanging out at Skeetkill Creek Marsh in Ridgefield. With temps supposed to stay in the mid to high-50s this week, maybe we’ll see some other species who are extending their seasonal stay in the region.
