Many thanks to Dave McLure for this nice Great Blue Heron sequence taken yesterday at Mill Creek Marsh!
The NJSEA Natural Resouces Management Department was out in the field yesterday when they came across an American Bittern (Botaurus lentiginosus) at a site off Penhorn Creek in Secaucus.
The American Bittern is on the State Endangered Species list. All told there are more than 35 species in the Meadowlands region that are listed as State endangered, threatened or species of special concern. You can read more about the American Bittern here
Great shot taken by Rich Brown on Sunday of a banded Bald Eagle at Losen Slot Creek Park in Little Ferry. The Eagle was also photographed on Jan. 13 at Mercer Lake in Mercer County and was initially banded New Jersey in May 2014. Thanks Rich!
