early autumn day.

In the butterfly dept., we had Monarch, Orange Sulphur, Cabbage White, and a very bedraggled Common Buckeye.

In nearby Harrier Meadow earlier in the morning, we had a pair of soaring Northern Harriers and some Laughing Gulls in addition to the usual suspects


Author Scott Weidensaul To Speak at DeKorte

Save the date: Monday, Dec. 6. Scott Weidensaul 2 (med-res) That's when prize-winning nature author Scott Weidensaul will give a free talk, “Against All Odds – Miracles of Bird Migration,” in DeKorte Park, Lyndhurst.

The talk, hosted by N.J. MC and sponsored by the Bergen County Audubon Society, will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the Meadowlands Environment Center auditorium.

Weidensaul is the author of more than two dozen books on natural history, including the Pulitzer Prize-nominated “Living on the Wind,” about bird migration.

His talk will explore the wonder and mechanics of migration, and the simple ways that humans can help at a time when the populations of many migratory birds are in drastic decline.
