Posting this as a reminder that we are getting occasionalBlack Skimmer sightings from all over the Meadowlands, so keep an eye out.
Jana Brusich reports she saw a Black Skimmer at Mill Creek Point yesterday: "And of course I didn't have my camera! It was heading toward Mill Creek Marsh around 6:30 p.m." (Thanks, Jana!)
This seems to be Edith Wallace Week on the Meadowlands Nature Blog.
Edith, as many of you know, helps lead many of nature walks at DeKorte Park.
Today we are posting a link to Don Torino's latest blog post, about Edith's wonderful contributions to our planet.
The link is here.
Can you identify this butterfly for us?
Ron Shields photographed it last week by the Carillon, but its identity remains a question mark.
Tom Yezerski, author of the acclaimed new children's book "Meadowlnads" will be do a talk and slide show for children and their families on Staurday at 10:30 a.m. at the Meadowlands Environment Center at DeKorte Park.
Tom gave a talk here last month, and he was terrific.
The book is on sale at a special price at the MEC's gift shop, and Tom will be happy to sign and inscribe copies.
A recent South Bergenite column about Tom is here.
