Chris Takacs took this shot yesterday of a Horned Grebe at DeKorte Park. Chris writes that while it’s common to see the waterfowl in the winter in Liberty State Park and Newark Bay, it’s pretty uncommon here. But the Grebes appear to be making their way north. More than 40 were spotted in the Bayonne and Jersey City area this past weekend.
Don Torino of the Bergen County Audubon Society reports that yesterday’s nature walk at Laurel Hill Park in Secaucus proved very fruitful, with sightings of Bald Eagles, Great Cormorants and much, much more.
Below is a bevy of great photos from the walk taken by Joe Koscielny.
The BCAS’ next free Meadowlands walk is Sunday, April 3, from 10 am to noon at Harrier Meadow in North Arlington, a beautiful natural area which is normally closed to the public. They’ll be keeping an eye out for lingering waterfowl and early spring arrivals. Meets outside the gate to Disposal Road, which is accessed off Schuyler Avenue.
