Wildlife Seen So Far This Season

2018 has been another year of first-time-seeing for a number of species in the Meadowlands for us. In addition to the milestone return of harbor seals to River Barge Park in late winter, once the season officially started we logged sightings of Semi-Palmated Plovers, squadrons of Black Skimmers, and of course Great and Snowy Egrets in their gorgeous white plumage. Just upriver from our launch at River Barge Park, Raptor’s Point saw lots of drama this season, with the family of Red-Tailed Hawks apparently pushed out by a pair of Osprey after their young ones fledged (both species have been seen at the Point, but the Osprey are more frequent occupants now, unlike years past).  Cromakill Marsh has been hosting large flocks of Least Sandpipers. Also seen: majestic Great Blue Herons, Terns, Red-winged Blackbirds, Tree Swallows, Barn Swallows, Cormorants, Gulls, Snapping Turtles, Muskrats, and a Red Fox.

  1. Thanks for your post. I would like to comment that the price of car insurance varies widely from one policy to another, mainly because there are so many different issues which play a role in the overall cost. One example is, the model and make of the auto will have a massive bearing on the price tag. A reliable aged family automobile will have a more affordable premium over a flashy expensive car.
