Thanks to everyone who came out to yesterday’s great Birding for Beginners program and to the Bergen County Audubon Society for their superb job in running the event. We had 85 people attend the program, which began with a talk on basic birding techniques, identification and optics. Participants then broke into groups for a walk around DeKorte Park, where eagles and Red-tailed hawks were among the birds seen.
In addition to the pics below, check out page L-2 in today’s Record for a photo that their photographer took at the event.
The BCAS will be back at DeKorte Park next week for two free programs: A guided nature walk of the park on Tuesday, April 19, from 10 am to noon; and an Earth Day Celebration on Friday, April 22, that includes a talk on raptors followed by a walk in the park. The Earth Day event runs from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 201-230-4983.
