Sunday was perfect weather for NJ MC’s twice-monthly nature walk with Bergen County Audubon Society.
We leisurely walked out to the Lyndhurst Nature Reserve, then around the Marsh Discovery Trail, with a soundtrack provided by phragmites rustling in the light September breeze.
The tide could have been lower for shorebird viewing, but what we missed in quantity we made up for in quality – including (for some of us) an immature Little Blue Heron, a Short-Billed Dowitcher and a Forster's Tern.
Also had a hard-to-identify shorebird (pictured here) swimming in the Shorebird Pool.
We also had great looks at a clear-winged moth and several butterfly species at the butterfly garden.
