NJMC Naturalist Brett Bragin took this shot and told us to save it for a rainy day. We couldn't wait. As a friend of the blog pointed out about the earlier photo, there is a faint second rainbow to the right. (Thanks, Brett!)
Highlight was a distant Bald Eagle and a bunch of Green-winged Teal — most of them feeding on a mudflat.
Yellow-rumps and Ruby-crowned Kinglets still abound.
Full list follows.
On Thanksgiving (Thursday, Nov. 25), all facilities will be closed but the park itself and trails will be open.
Dress for the weather; with the dome open, you are basically outside.
Each evening at least two major objects in the night sky will be viewed, plus one or two other celestial objects or events depending on the observing conditions.
Next Monday, for example, three planets — Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune — should be in view.
