The Frank Chapman Birding Trail

IMG_0898Finally got a chance to walk along the Frank M. Chapman Birding Trail in Teaneck on Sunday. 

It's a great place to go birding along the Hackensack River by historic New Bridge Landing.

Even in February, my friends and I saw some great birds.

Star if the show was an adult Bald Eagle who flew fairly low directly overhead -- twice -- around 5 o'clock.

Of course, I didn't bring the right camera.

Of birds of note included a perched Peregrine Falcon and a Belted Kingfisher.

The trail is short but filled with informative signs, and the river view is wonderful.

Hats off to Don Torino and Bergen County Audubon Society for creating the trail, which honors Teaneck's own Frank Chapman,
