We are declaring yesterday's boardwalk bird walk at DeKorte Park a success, even if we did have a pouring rain and a low turnout. (A coincidence? We think not.)
Highlights included four Forster's Terns, a Black-Crowned Night Heron, Snowy Egret, Great Egret, two Kingfishers, several peeps, Black Duck, Mallard, Gadwall, and more than swallows than we could count scooping up bugs along the Transco Trail (above).
The hour-long walk went along the Marsh Discovery Trail to the Transco Trail and back along the main drive, with a stop at Teal Pond.
