Here are a couple of  images from Sunday morning. At low tide, there were 50+ Great Egrets in the Shorebird Pool. As the water fills in, the birds begin to disperse in the other parts of the park.

These images are with the cell phone camera.

(Thanks, Faizan!)

A Terrific Butterfly Day

Our fifth annual Butterfly Day was a big success — with more than 700 participants, 19 species of butterflies and two species of diurnal moths.

The costume contest was a big hit once again.

A link to the story on the event in today’s editions of The Record is here.

A link to The Record’s online photo gallery of the event is here.

We’ll post more pix and a full list of butterflies as time allows. (A big thank you to everyone who participated in this wonderful event!)
