As we start to talk about habitat, I thought this post/ad from SFI might be interesting. It lists 6 projects promoting bird habitat. If you think that birds can just land anywhere, think about this list a little more.
Also, this weekend we saw a pair of bald eagles just 2 or 3 miles up the Raritan River (near the Somerset Diner) from the College Ave campus. Someone said their nest was nearby and eBird has someone sighting them recently too. Just a few miles further upstream is a widely known breeding pair at Duke Farms. You can watch them on the EagleCam, especially once they have some eggs to hatch.
