We will be exploring every woodlot, marsh, and mud flat in Bergen County in search of as many bird species as we can find.
In 2012, we had an amazing day where we counted 139 species, which gave us first place in our category, and helped us raise more than $2,000 four new native plant garden by the carillon on Disposal Road (pictured above).
This year we need your support so we can defend our title against some strong competition – and create a better wildlife habitat for birds along the Kingsland Overlook trail in DeKorte Park.
More information — including how to contribute — follows.
Things are a little slow these days at DeKorte (and everywhere else).
Still … there are a few things around if you're patient. Ron [Shields] and I managed to get some really good shots of some Orchard Orioles.
The immature male was by the retention pond and the mature male was up on the Kingsland Overlook Trail.
Sadly, I missed the trifecta … we saw the female but I didn't get any shots of her.
