Tuesday Teaser Answer

Tuesday's Teaser, photographed during  a guided walk at Harrier Meadow last month, was toughie because of the angle, but then again attempted bird IDs often involve bad angles and fleeting glimpses.

To all who said "Song Sparrow," congrats. Above, another (better) view. Thanks to all who responded.

Bonus Nature Walk: ‘Green Friday’ at DeKorte

Looking for a great way to beat the “Black Friday” day-after-Thanksgiving shopping crush? 

Visit the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission’s DeKorte Park for a free “Green Friday” guided nature walk and talk beginning at 10 a.m. outside the Meadowlands Environment Center.

The Nov. 26 event, sponsored by the NJMC and the Bergen County Audubon Society, will feature a walk on DeKorte Park’s Marsh Discovery Trail and other nearby trails, followed by a bring-your-own-lunch talk and slide show featuring some of the amazing critters that live in the Meadowlands.

The walk runs from 10 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. The brown-bag lunch is from noon to 1 p.m. in the Meadowlands Environment Center’s Visitor Center, which offers great views of DeKorte Park’s Shorebird Pool and the Manhattan skyline.
