Tricolored Heron at DeKorte Park

The young Tricolored Heron is back at DeKorte Park. It was last seen around 11:10 in the Shorebird Pool by the Transco Trail, not far from the first water-monitoring station.

A big thanks to NJMC Naturalist Mike Newhouse for giving us the heads-up.

Shorebird Pool water levels will remain as low as rainfall allows for Kevin Karlson Day tomorrow and the rest of this entire weekend.

"Just before noontime at DeKorte, I saw several Red Admirals, a Painted Lady, a Monarch, the usual skippers and I did capture a sphinx moth. [Snowberry clear-winged or Hummingbird Clear-winged?]

"Way too hot to be out there in the middle of the day. 🙂 "   (Thanks, Regina!)
