Many thanks to Jill Weiss for these photos taken yesterday at DeKorte Park of a beautiful Black Skimmer doing what skimmers do best!
The tulip tree in DeKorte Park has started to bloom! Our own Gaby Bennett-Meany took these photos. The tree is likely a teenager. According to the Ohio State University Extension the tulip tree “often does not flower until it reaches at least 15 years of age, and even then only sparsely in the uppermost reaches of the tree, making the upright-held flowers more difficult to notice and appreciate.
As promised,here’s our final batch of photos of the day from Joe Koscielny taken during Sunday’s Bergen Audubon walk at DeKorte. Here we’ve got some great wildlife and plant-life shots. Thanks again Joe!
Here are some more photos from Joe Koscielny taken during Sunday’s BCAS walk at DeKorte Park. We’ll have another batch from Joe later this afternoon. Thanks Joe!
What a perfect morning! We’ll start the day with some great photos that Joe Koscielny took in DeKorte during this past Sunday’s Bergen Audubon walk. We’ll have more from Joe throughout the day!
Cool story on northjersey.com about Bergen County deploying Fathead Minnows into local ponds to east mosquito larvae. It’s especially timely as this year’s wet spring has resulted in more favorable breeding grounds for mosquitoes.
According to the story the small fish “has a big appetite for mosquito larvae. So the state Department of Environmental Protection raises them at its hatchery in Warren County because fathead minnows — an alternative to pesticides — are the go-to natural weapon of choice for many mosquito control commissions throughout the state.”
Join the Bergen County Audubon Society this Sunday, June 3, for a guided nature walk through DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst! It’s a great opportunity to experience the Meadowlands’ natural beuaty in its premier park. They’ll also be on the lookout for spring migrants, flycatchers and shorebirds.
The walk goes from 10 am to noon.
