Join the Bergen County Audubon Society next Tuesday, Dec. 19, for a guided walk at Laurel Hill Park in Secaucus. The walk goes from 10 am to noon and we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for ducks, cormorants and other wintering birds. For more information contact Don Torino at firstname.lastname@example.org or 201-230-4983.
Due to the forecast for inclement weather this weekend the Marsh Discovery Trail will be closed on Saturday, Dec. 9, and Sunday, Dec. 10. We apologize for the inconvenience.
As promised, here’s the second batch of great photos taken by Joe Koscielny during this past Sunday’s Disposal Road/DeKorte Park BCAS Nature Walk. Thanks Joe!

Many thanks to Joe Koscielny of BCAS for these fantastic photos taken during this past Sunday’s Bergen Audubon Disposal Road/DeKorte Park walk. We’ll have a second batch tomorrow morning.
Late fall and winter brings my favorite family of birds to the Meadowlands and to my backyard: Sparrows. This may sound a little strange to folks that have not been drawn into the wonderful, diverse world of Sparrows, but there is a lot more to these LBJ’s (Little Brown Jobs) then you might think.
Our native sparrows are beautiful, fascinating and travel from as far away as Sub Arctic Canada to spend the fall and winter months in the Meadowlands and even in your very own New Jersey backyards.
Stephanie Zussman sent in a photo she got of a beautiful Belted Kingfisher this past Saturday at DeKorte. “She’s been a pretty loud and energetic visitor!” Stephanie writes. We don’t get many Belted Kingfisher photos; thank you for sharing Stephanie!
Those who came out to yesterday’s Bergen County Audubon Society Nature Walk along Disposal Road and in DeKorte Park were treated to Bald Eagles and a plethora of ducks. Thanks to Dee De Santis for snapping these fantastic photos!
Thanks to Rich Brown for this photo taken Saturday afternoon at DeKorte of a Great Blue Heron enjoying a tasty snack!
Continuing to catch up from being away the past few days. Many thanks to Mickey Raine for these spectacular shots taken last Sunday at Mill Creek Marsh!
