Long-Eared Owl - March 19

This weekend I visited the Hatfield Swamp, found near the Caldwell area. I was lucky to find a few Long-Eared Owls. This area is a great spot for them, as well as, Great Horned Owls & Northern saw-Whet Owls in winter. A non-avian bonus was seeing a Coyote !
Also this week I saw my first Eastern Phoebe of the spring, and the continuing Red-Headed Woodpecker at Garret Mountain in the Paterson area.
Next week, I'm off to Mexico - but not for a bird-watching trip, although I'm sure to see some birds I've not seen before.
