How do Gulls Survive Winter?
It
has been a tough winter season around New York Harbor and the worst part is it
seems old man winter just doesn’t want to go away. Spring arrived on March 20th,
but we received around 5 inches of fresh wet snow. While some days have been delightful,

Spry Sparrows On A Late Winter Weekend
Something
amazing happened last weekend. It was both mild and sunny on Saturday and
Sunday. A rare event after the last six weeks of winter, which gave us so many cold,
snowy weekends.  The
winds of March were blowing and bearing a message on the first week...

NY Harbor Has Not Found Spring Yet
It
wasn’t the biggest or most severe storm in the history of New York Harbor, but after
a record setting cold February along with a snow or ice storm every week, more
winter is not what people were seeking during the first week of March. We were
looking for...

Man Accused of Shooting at Whales
Truly horrible news. Evidence of how
some people view wildlife and wild nature as a annoyance or something to
control. We all need to do a better job of calling out people who are irresponsible
and abusive. We need to put into plain words the importance of ...

A Winter Gathering of Small Shorebirds
Roughly
50 days after the winter solstice and old man winter still seems to be going strong
around New York Harbor. Snow, sleet, and ice with predominately gray skies and strong
arctic winds dominate the landscape, making spring seem far away.  Yet,
the day...

Making Homes for Fish Hawks
Like
an old fashioned barn raising, about 15 volunteers   with the Bayshore Regional Watershed Council
came together on a clear but chilly Sunday morning in late March to raise a wooden
nesting platform for Ospreys, a state threatened species in New Jersey ...

The First Oystercatcher of Spring in NY Harbor
What an unusual looking
harbinger of spring.   Today I saw my
first American Oystercatcher of the year. The poor bird was all alone and
foraging for food in the mudflats of Spermaceti Cove in Sandy Hook Bay, located
downstream from New York City. Who knows,...

Bay Birds Attempt to Avoid Bay Ice

No doubt this was a cold winter season. Just how cold? February officially made

Fahrenheit...

Cold Temperatures Create a Frozen Estuary
It
was nothing safe to walk on, but much Sandy Hook Bay and Raritan Bay was locked
up in ice this weekend. Several weeks of teeth-chattering, unseasonable cold and
arctic low temperatures in the single digits   set up a wide layer of salty bay ice from roug...

Eight Inches is Eight Inches
What would happen if you
planned a blizzard with three feet of snow, but at the last minute everything
changed. Despite numerous reports from weather forecasters all weekend about an
“historic” winter storm, Mother Nature had other plans. A winter storm tha...
