The Little Ferry newspaper, Little Ferry Local, has two informative stories about Losen Slote Park this week — an article about Eagle Scout candidate Patrick Carney’s efforts to upgrade the park entrance, and an article about Little Ferry’s grant application.
A link to the story about Patrick is here. The newspaper’s photo of Patrick is above.

The Lark Sparrow is still around, and putting on quite a show at the Carillon on Disposal Road. The best part of the show is when he displays those flashy tail feathers.
Roy Woodford photographed the cute little dude last night around sunset, by the carillon, apparently looking for the pelican. (The Lark Sparrow, not Roy.)
Will try to update later this a.m.
Why is this the perfect bird for today? (Courtesy of the NJMC’s Mike Newhouse and his band of birder/banders.) Continue reading
The NJMC’s amazing banders banded this raptor this morning.
We thought this young bird was so cool we had to post right away.
How do you like them talons?
BTW, can you I.D. it?
Dennis Cheeseman took the above swan photo at Mill Creek Marsh today.
He wonders if it is a Tundra Swan or Trumpeter Swan. He leans toward Tundra, and so do we.
As promised, here are several of the Lark Sparrow shots that Ron Shields took near the Carillon in DeKorte Park (along Disposal Road) this morning. Ron also found the bird. (Thanks, Ron!)
On Wednesday, we posted a few sunset shots by Ron Shields, who wrote that Roy Woodford and Mike Maddaloni probably had some cool shots as well.
Roy Woodford responed: “Here’s my take on Sunday’s sunset … the colors were absolutely incredible.”
(Thanks, Roy!) Mike …?
Ron Shields photographed a rare-for-the-region Lark Sparrow this morning at the Carillon area of Disposal Road.
Will post Ron’s pic when it becomes available. In the meantime, posting this poor substitute (Lark Sparrow on right).
