The rare Curlew Sandpiper was spotted again just this morning off the Saw Mill Trail at DeKorte Park. The Curlew, first spotted on Saturday, has been seen sporadically since then. Thanks to Chris Takacs, who just sent in this great photo!
Thanks to the Bergen County Audubon Society for its generous donation of Ironweed plants to the NJSEA for use around DeKorte Park. The plant is beneficial to butterflies and caterpillars. Says NJSEA Parks Supervisor Gaby Bennett Meany (pictured above with BCAS President Don Torino): It’s a native to the Meadowlands and there is so little of it growing in the wild that it’s one of my favorites!!!
A big thank you to the Bergen County Audubon Society, art teacher Nicole Bookstaber and students from the Robert Waters School in Union City for combining on a great Tree Swallow nest box project. The BCAS donated the Tree Swallow next boxes to the school, where Nicole guided her creative 5th and 6th graders in an awesome job painting the boxes. The BCAS brought the new additions to the NJSEA this morning. They will definitely find good homes, and the tree swallows are talking about them already!
Great photos of a Cedar Waxwing in all its glory taken yesterday at DeKorte Park by Dennis Cheeseman. Thank you Dennis!!
Harrier Meadow in North Arlington will be open until dusk today for people to have the opportunity to view the rare Red-necked Phalarope (above) and Curlew Sandpiper!
Chris Takacs sent in this photo he got of a Red-necked Phalarope in the Saw Mill Mud Flats in DeKorte Park this morning. As of now it is still there. We’ll keep you posted!
Thanks to Dave McClure for these photos taken around DeKorte Park last week, showing the park is a great vantage point to capture avian life as well as scenes from across the river!
Thanks to the NJSEA’s own Terry Doss for these great photos of a Lesser Yellowlegs and a Snowy Egret taken out in the field yesterday!
As Dave McClure shows by these pics taken yesterday at DeKorte Park, even on a dreary day the birds are still out and as beautiful as ever. Thanks Dave!
Thanks for this great array taken by Dave McClure at DeKorte recently including mockingbirds, swallows and more!
