Many thanks to Joe Koscielny of BCAS for these fantastic photos taken during this past Sunday’s Bergen Audubon Disposal Road/DeKorte Park walk. We’ll have a second batch tomorrow morning.
Late fall and winter brings my favorite family of birds to the Meadowlands and to my backyard: Sparrows. This may sound a little strange to folks that have not been drawn into the wonderful, diverse world of Sparrows, but there is a lot more to these LBJ’s (Little Brown Jobs) then you might think.
Our native sparrows are beautiful, fascinating and travel from as far away as Sub Arctic Canada to spend the fall and winter months in the Meadowlands and even in your very own New Jersey backyards.
