Ankur Sharan captured this scene of what looks to be a couple of mallards diving for a meal at DeKorte Park earlier this month. Ankur also got some nice Terrapin, Red-winged Blackbird, Tree Swallow and Daffodil shots. Thanks Ankur!
It’s that time of year again: The New Jersey Audobon Society’s 35th Annual World Series of Birding is Saturday May 12, and the Meadowlands Marsh Hawks team will be traversing the region to raise funding for NJAS research to help our avian friends!
All funds raised by the Meadowlands Marsh Hawks go to NJAS to support their research with grassland surveys, shorebird surveys and banding, and work being conducted at Stone Harbor. All of the projects are conducted on species in decline. To donate to the Marsh Hawks click here .
During the World Series of Birding teams of birders set out to record as many species as they can, by sight or sound, over a 24-hour period. The Marsh Hawks will begin their journey throughout the Meadowlands at the stroke of midnight on Friday, May 11, and continue until midnight May 12.
Good luck Meadowlands Marsh Hawks!
