Northern Flicker, head tilted to the side. Picture taken at the west end of Lincoln Park near the Hackensack River. Because I never seem to learn, my battery ran out and this was the only decent shot I managed to get.

Thanks for the picture of the eagle.   I thought I saw one fly over NJCU while I was at lunch one day and just thought I was nuts since there are no eagles in Jersey City....or so i thought! Now if someone can post a picture of a vulture that I think I've seen I will really feel much better :o

First known bald eagle nest in Hudson County since... well, nobody knows. Probably pre-colonial times. Kearny Point, visible from Kellogg Street:

Black Skimmers at LSP!! Their bills are unique: knife-thin, with the lower mandible extending past the upper. When they fish, they drag their lower bills through the water, using touch to catch fish in the low light of dawn or dusk at low tide.

"Hey, did you hear that?  Haw, haw.  The little kid says he saw a Hairy Pecker!  Haw haw haw.

To be fair, that is pretty damn funny.



Hairy Pecker.


Heh.

I distinctly remember being an eleven year old Boy Scout working on my birdwatching merit badge and being laughed at by the sixteen year olds,  by the guys who snuck into the woods to smoke cigarettes.

So, I heard a ruckus this morning and looked out the window to find two very vocal crows jumping from branch to branch, focused on something very large...

Long-eared Owl seen well (not by me, unfortunately) in Liberty State Park Saturday - along the bridge/walkway just south of the rock wall abutting the golf course.

That is pretty awesome.  8) See him spit out that pellet?
