Thanks to Joe Koscielny for these fantastic photos taken on Tuesday’s DeKorte nature walk. We’ll have a second batch tomorrow. Don’t forget to kick off 2017 at DeKorte with a New Year’s Day walk from 10 am to noon led by the Bergen County Audubon Society. For more info: firstname.lastname@example.org or 201-230-4983
On Saturday I received a wonderful photo from friend and colleague Chris Takacs. Chris was participating in the Christmas Bird Count and sent over a beautiful Christmas card like photo of two adult Bald Eagles on the snowy Passaic River.
As far as I was concerned this was the perfect holiday photo, something you print the family name on and mail to friends and relatives. It was majestic image if there ever was one. But it was much more than a nice photo. To me it was a symbol of hope and faith for the future of wildlife and the human spirit.
