Here are some awesome Super Bird Sunday photos of a variety of waterfowl and eagles taken by the BCAS’ Joe Koscielny. We’ll have more later today. Thanks Joe!
The Philadelphia Eagles were flying high after capturing their first Super Bowl victory on Sunday night. But they weren’t the only ones soaring. Hours earlier, several of the raptors were seen during the Bergen County Audubon Society’s annual Super Bird Sunday walk at DeKorte Park. Jim Wright of the Celery Farm and Beyond blog captured the photo above. Stay tuned for more photos to come.
In honor of Groundhog Day, thanks to Jim Wright! Head over to his Celery Farm and Beyond blog and check out the story behind this great video!
Before you settle in on the couch for the big game between the Eagles and Patriots this Sunday, get out into nature with the Bergen County Audubon Society. They’re leading a nature walk at DeKorte Park from 10 am to noon.
Prizes will be awarded to the first people to spot a bird with the same name as a National Football League team: Eagles, Falcons, Cardinals, Ravens, Seahawk (Osprey), Wood(packer) and “Giant” Great Blue Heron.

If you are feeding birds in your backyard then you are probably going through bags of birdseed so fast that you might need to take out a second mortgage just to keep your feeders full.
Sometimes it seems that our backyard birds are eating nowhere else but at our feeders all day long 7 days a week. No sooner do you fill them up that they are empty again. The Blue Jays even stare in my window wondering what is taking me so long to bring them out their daily allocation of peanuts.
But things in the backyard may not be entirely as they seem. Ornithologists tell us that birds only get about 10 to 20 percent of their food at our backyard bird feeders. So what else could they be eating out there, especially where there are no feeders to be found?
