A clear sky, comfortable temperatures and the aviary mating season made for the perfect conditions for the Sunset and Pink Moon Walk at the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge in Broad Channel last Thursday evening.

The 2-mile walk around the perimeter of West Pond — part of the trail was washed out in Hurricane Sandy — was led by National Park Service rangers who spoke about the shorebirds and plant life native to Jamaica Bay, and allowed hikers to stop, see and listen to the sounds of birds at the tail-end of the mating season.

Welcome to the discussion.
