Sunday Afternoon’s MEC Walk at DeKorte


We had a nice Meadowlands Environment Center guided walk Sunday afternoon that featured 32 species of birds, including two great birds that begin with "bal" — Baltimore Oriole and Bald Eagle.

Also saw butterflies galore — Red Admirals, American Ladies and Question Marks by the dozens.

Full list of birds follows.
