HAWTHORNE, NJ - This past Sunday, the Hawthorne Environmental Commission/Green Team hosted an 8:30 a.m. bird walk where local nature enthusiasts headed out to take a look at the fluttering fellows who share the borough of Hawthorne with their human counterparts.
"We had a beautiful day Sunday, but the birds were kind of quiet," Holly Cowen told TAPinto Hawthorne. "As a friend of mine told me once 'it’s not a zoo'. We saw lots of catbirds and starlings, heard some woodpeckers, and saw a few confusing fall warblers."
Cowen submitted some pictures from the walk, as displayed above. As to the confusing fall warblers, Cowen explained. "In the fall, they look different, as they lose some of their breeding plumage and are harder to identify. Although it was quiet, we still enjoyed a nice walk and did see a few birds."
On Tuesday, October 1, at 7:30 p.m., the Green Team is hosting a lecture, "Birding 101" at the Louis Bay 2nd Library. The last bird walk for 2019 is scheduled for Sunday, October 6. The Green Team will meet with those who wish to participate at 8:30 a.m. at the Boys and Girls Club.
