Just trying to make it a mystery fit for a Monday morning.
Had 36 birds on a walk there yesterday, including lots of Greater Yellowlegs, a pair of Forster's Terns, lots of swallows, an uncooperative Yellow Warbler, the Caruso of Song Sparrows, a dozen Great Egrets, and a Snowy or two.
Full list and more pix follow.
Join the Friends of the Fell House tomorrow (Sunday, April 24) between 11 a.m. And 3 p.m. for a day of free history and Earth Day events.
At noon, Heard's Brigade will reenact Founding Father John Fell's arrest by British Loyalists on April 22, 1777.
There will be colonial history activities and Earth Day activities for all ages throughout the day.
The John Fell House is located at 475 Franklin Turnpike, Allendale, N.J. More information: 201-760-0804 or [email protected].
The Celery Farm was once part of John Fell's estate, and called Fell's Meadows.
The reenactment of John Fell's arrest is made possible by the Winifred M. and George P. Pitkin Foundation.
Kurt Muenz did this terrific video of today's dedication of the 20-acre Lillian Thomas Natural Area in Allendale.
A big thank you to Lillian Thomas for all she has done, to the Borough of Allendale and the Passaic River Coalition, and to Mayor Barra and Mayor White for honoring this amazing woman.
I will share all comments with Sis.
(Thanks, too, to Kurt for this video!)
Just happened to come across my Wood Duck vs. Crow pix from last year, and it happened a year ago today, giving me an excuse to repost with a tighter crop -- perhaps even more dramatic than the original pic.
