What do you think? (About the bug, not about me being wrong...)
Since the blog was orginally called "Birds, Bats and Beyond," it's only fitting that it promote Batstock.
The first event is next Friday from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Meadowlands Environment Center in DeKorte Park, Lyndhurst: The Meet–A—Bat & Bat Movie night Fund-raiser.
Enjoy beverages, snacks, and the company of these friendly, incredibly important night-flying mammals. A $5 donation is requested. For more information on this event and other Batstock events, visit njbatman.com.
"The first migrant warblers have started to appear at the CF--today featured a a female-type AMERICAN REDSTART and a "limey," aka a young CHESTNUT-SIDED WARBLER.
"Hummingbirds have been around daily--the peak of their migration thru the CF is now thru early Sept. Several BOBOLINKS were heard "pinking" there way to Argentina."
The full list follows. (Thanks, Rob!)
My latest "Bird Watcher" column for The Record and Herald News is about Nickerson Beach on the South Shore of Long Island -- a great place to see American Oystercatchers, Black Skimmers, Common Terns, Piping Plovers and more.
The link is here.
