Sunday’s DeKorte Walk: The Full List

carp explosion fredWe had a great guided walk on Sunday, followed by a reception for the gallery show “The Nature of the Meadowlands,” featuring 60 images from the NJMC’s coffee table book.

Highlights for the walk included a great aerial show by Black Skimmers (for early arrivals), great looks at a Baltimore Oriole, an appearance by a Brown Thrasher and the world’s most amorous carp (above). We saw a total of 44 species of birds.

Fred Nisenholz provided the photos accompanying this post. (Thankls, Fred!)

More of his pix and the full bird list follow.
