Our next free walk with the Bergen County Audubon is a plant walk at DeKorte Park on Sunday, June 8 at 10 a.m. The walk features the incredible Edith Wallace, who will discuss the secret life of the plants in DeKorte and other equally interesting items along the way.
Full listing follows.

I heard and saw a Blue Grosbeak Wednesday morning along the Teal Pool section of the Transco Trail.
I believe these are not too common this far north in NJ. Got an (for my standards) acceptable photo. I also have terrible record shot of the Whimbrel last week (May 29) . Both are attached.
The latest South Bergenite has an informative article about the growing deer population in our region.
The link is here.

I was reviewing some of the recent pics at DeKorte. Found this picture of a banded Indigo Bunting.
Light was pretty bad, and bird was some distance away.
I can see the numbers are upside down but if you guys can make sense of the numbers here …
(Thanks, Faizan! We couldn’t make sense of the numbers, but NJMC naturalist Mike Newhouse reports that of the 27,450 birds that his crew has banded, 350 were Indigo Buntings. So it could be “one of ours.”)
