Meadowlands Environment Center educator Kirk Weber spotted this terrapin hatchling on Wednesday in DeKorte on the Lyndhurst Nature Reserve heading toward the teal pool. This little guy is just too cute!
Ray Duffy reports that the Caspian Tern seen last night at DeKorte is still here as of 9 am. at the shorebird pool.
We’ll start the morning with the last of our BCAS Tuesday DeKorte walk photos. Thanks to Joe Koscielny for all his great work! Our next walk is Sunday, June 4, at Harrier Meadow in North Arlington from 9 to 11 am. For more info contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 201-230-4983
Tuesday’s BCAS DeKorte walk yielded a plethora of species. Thanks to Joe Koscielny for this awesome array! We’ll finish up with a final batch tomorrow morning.
I have often been accused of wearing my heart on my shirt sleeve and openly displaying my emotions, sometimes to a fault, especially when it comes to wildlife and conservation issues.
I often find myself attempting to help an injured Robin as passionately as I oppose senseless habitat destruction to a local planning board, or blocking oncoming traffic for crossing geese and on the same day dealing with issues concerning protecting nesting Bald Eagle.
Some folks tell me as President of Bergen County Audubon Society I need to think in more scientific terms as far as what is more important to the conservation movement, the life of one bird or protecting the environment for all birds. Some tell me that conservation money may be better spent elsewhere than funding wildlife rehabilitation centers that can only save one bird at a time.
Since I am not a scientist and rarely do what others think I should do, my persistent answer to them is that “every bird’s life is important.”
