DeKorte Park Map for Duck-watchers*

Trail guide inside map 8-10
*Your duckage may differ

With the Long-tailed Duck here for nearly a week and more than a dozen duck species seen at DeKorte Park on last weekend's Christmas Bird Count, we thought we'd put together a map pointing out where various species are being seen in case you can vistit DeKorte over the holidays.

We are also getting Green-winged Teal and Gadwall.

Directions to DeKorte Park are in the left-hand column of this blog.

Scroll down for various posts on recent bird sightings.

2010 in Review: June


The year 2010 marked the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission's 41th anniversary and the continued expansion of our nature programs with Bergen County Audubon Society — including an Earth Day Celebration, a Kearny Marsh Cleanup, a Butterfly Day, a "Green Friday" nature walk, and a talk by Scott Weidensaul.

We thought we'd celebrate by looking back at 2010, month by month.    

Here are some June highlights:
