got birds?

The Teaneck Creek Conservancy loves its birds, especially at this time of year. A brilliant flash of red against the snow, or goldfinches in their winter colors never fail to inspire. Who cares about the ground hog seeing his shadow, I'd much rather watch the birds as a hopeful sign of spring.

Join fellow bird-watchers across the nation next week for the Great Backyard Bird Count. Sponsored by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and Audubon, the program is a citizen-science project that takes a real-time snapshot of birds across the continent from February 13th through 16th. For more information about the program visit: www.birdsource.org/gbbc.

Come by the park at 10:00am on any of those days and we'll be happy to start you off with a warm cup of cocoa, the necessary forms, and a map of the park. If we're not here, look for the forms in our Membership Box (in the Puffin Way parking lot). And if you like, leave you completed forms back in the same box, and we'll enter the data online for you.

See you on the trails!


  1. This blog really makes me long for spring. Some birds here in Sweden do try a little singing already, and it is getting lighter!

  2. Nice photos! You guys are definitely on my list for a visit!
