HAWTHORNE, NJ - Green Team member Holly Cowen shared some extraordinary photos of local wildlife seen in Hawthorne. Among them, "Hollywood"--a hawk the Green Team says is a local resident and far from camera shy--cardinals, barn swallow, "Foxy" the terrestrial mammal of the group, red bellied woodpecker, northern flicker, barnswallow, and catbird.
Cowen said that the Green Team also plans to host more bird walks for Hawthorne residents interested in learning more about the creatures they share the borough with, as well as getting to make new friends. "The upcoming bird walks are Saturday, September 7, Sunday, September 22, and Sunday, October 6. We will be meeting at 8 Acres by the Boys and Girls Club side at 8:30 a.m."
The bird walks are free and those who go should prepare themselves for the walk beforehand. "Wear comfy shoes or boots, it can get muddy there," Cowen said. "Bring water if needed, and binoculars if you have them. We may have some fall/winter arrivals--but get some fresh air and exercise and meet some of your neighbors."
