Thanks to Joe Koscielny for this wonderful variety of photos taken this past Sunday during the Bergen County Audubon Society’s Father’s Day walk at DeKorte Park, including the mallards above having a hard time keeping their eyes open!
Thanks to Mickey Raine for these great photos taken recently of a Great Egret at DeKorte Park and a Snowy Egret at Mill Creek Marsh. The difference? Look closely and you’ll see that the larger Great Egret has a yellow beak and black feet. The smaller Snowy Egret is just the opposite: a black beak with yellow feat.

Truly amazing photo of a Black Saddlebags Dragonfly at Mill Creek Marsh taken by Elaine Raine, with more from Mickey Raine at Mill Creek and DeKorte Park. Thanks Mickey and Elaine for these awesome shots!
Check out these fantastic photos courtesy of Mickey Raine of the thriving milkweed plants at Mill Creek Marsh. Milkweed is vital to Monarch butterflies. Monarchs cannot survive without milkweed; their caterpillars only eat milkweed plants and monarch butterflies need milkweed to lay their eggs. Thanks Mickey!
