The female EURASIAN WIGEON has returned to Darlington
Lake in Mahwah for its 3rd fall/early winter. I originally discovered this bird
on 21 Nov. 2010.
It was first reported yesterday by Doug Morel and it has also
been seen today. It was with a small group of American Wigeon (13) A drake
Gadwall and Great Blue Heron were also present.

Palm Warbler, Osprey, and Cooper's Hawk (3+).
The Wildlife Center in
Wyckoff produced by first of season FOX SPARROW (2), a FIELD SPARROW, a flock
of 8 BLUEBIRDS, a BLUE-HEADED VIREO, Palm Warbler, Phoebe, and both Kinglets.
PURPLE FINCHES and SISKINS continue daily and were seen at both locations,
