Great find! Most of us think of RHM as a shorebird/raptor spot, but the landbird migration can be excellent there, particularly in the fall. I've had big numbers and variety of warblers there on early mornings after the passage of a cold front, particularly along the river near the Jersey barriers north if the typical shorebird spots.

A most excellent and very birdie start for both of us! The meadows is alive this morning. This goes very well with hot cup of coffee.
