Thanks to Joe Koscielny for this wonderful variety of photos taken this past Sunday during the Bergen County Audubon Society’s Father’s Day walk at DeKorte Park, including the mallards above having a hard time keeping their eyes open!
Thanks to Mickey Raine for these great photos taken recently of a Great Egret at DeKorte Park and a Snowy Egret at Mill Creek Marsh. The difference? Look closely and you’ll see that the larger Great Egret has a yellow beak and black feet. The smaller Snowy Egret is just the opposite: a black beak with yellow feat.
Don’t forget to join us for the first Meadowlands Native Plant Day on Sunday, June 30, from 10 am to 3 pm at DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst. The Bergen County Audubon Society and the NJSEA will be giving native plant walks and talks at this free event and we’ll have information tables from several organizations.
