As promised, here are Mickey Raine’s absolutely gorgeous sunset photos of a frozen over Mill Creek Marsh taken on Saturday. Great stuff Mickey!
Gabriel Willow of New York City Audubon sent along this report from yesterday’s Bergen County Audubon Society walk that covered DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst, River Barge Park in Carlstadt and the Eagles’ nest in Ridgefield Park. We thank NYC Audubon for their interest in the Meadowlands and their camaraderie!
I hope you’ve all warmed up by now after our chilly (but beautiful) walk yesterday. I always enjoy visiting the hidden gem of Richard W. DeKorte Park in the heart of the NJ Meadowlands, and it was a pleasure to share it with you all.
A big thanks goes out to Chris, Don, and the other knowledgeable locals from the Bergen County Audubon chapter who showed us around, and to the NJ Sports & Exposition Authority for letting us warm up and use their facilities.
The BCAS hosted a guided nature walk of DeKorte Park yesterday, then headed to River Barge Park and Ridgefield Park. Eagles were easily the stars of the day. Thanks to Dee De Santis for these great picks of the majestic raptors who never fail to delight. Thanks as well to the New York City Audubon Society for making the trip across the river!
Join the Bergen County Audubon Society for their first Meadowlands Nature Walk of 2018 at DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst from 10 am to noon this Sunday, Jan. 7. They’ll be looking for raptors, ducks and other birds.
Meets at the Meadowlands Environment Center. For more info contact Don Torino at firstname.lastname@example.org or 201-230-4983.
