Meadowlands Birding Festival

Sorry -- thought I had posted this yesterday.

Saturday's Meadowlands Birding Festival was a terrific and well-attended event. Pretty cool for a festival had been on hiatus for several years. IMG-5492

DeKorte Park was beautiful as ever (gotta love that Manhattan skyline in the background), though I couldn't be sure that the bird below was a young Little Blue Heron. Needed to bring a camera with a telephoto.

Other pictures follow, including speaker Don Smith with an archival aerial image of the Meadowlnds and Giselle Smisko  with an awesome Red-shouldered Hawk. Sorry for not getting a pic of my co-speaker, Ron Shields,  who did a great job as well.

The Record's coverage of the festival is here.

The event was sponsored by Bergen Cunty Audubon Society and the NJ Sports and Exposition Authority. A shout-out to both.
