Banded Red-tail

Megan Helsel shared this photo of a Red-tailed Hawk that was banded and released this earlier this week at the NJMC’s banding station by Naturalist Mike Newhouse and his terrific team.

So next time you’re photographing raptors on Disposal Road, keep a shutter cocked for this guy.

(Thanks, Megan!)

Losen Slote Trail Cleared

DSCN7963Thanks to a chainsaw-wielding good Samaritan, the fallen tree trunks that made the main trail through Losen Slote Park semi-impassable have now been cleared away.

As a result, it’s fairly easy to get to the meadow at Losen Slote and see views like this, photographed earlier this week.
