A Report from Losen Slote

Haven’t been to Losen Slote Park in Little Ferry in awhile, but I got out there on Thursday and must say I like how the trails have been more clearly marked now.   This will make it easier when the vegetation grows back to navigate around.

There were a few eagles hanging around there on Thursday.   I think they were checking out the pond.

Lots of sparrows and woodpeckers about in there also.    Attached are a few pics —  not my best but it hard to hold still when it is 15 degrees out there and the wind is howling.

(Thanks, Dennis!)

Dennis asks, btw, if nearby Mehrhof Pond part of this challenge. The short answer is no.
