Also seen: Many Bufflehead and eight Black-crowned Night Herons in the Kingsland Impoundment… plus a Brant (in the Lyndhurst Nature Reserve; thanks, Mike Ackley!), Black Ducks, Gadwalls, Northern Shovelers and Northern Pintails.
Just a reminder that we have a 10 a.m. bird walk tomorrow at Mill Creek Marsh in Secaucus, in conjunction with the Bergen County Audubon Society.
This free two-hour walk starts at the entrance to the Mill Creek Marsh in Secaucus.
Walk leader Don Torino of the BCAS did a scouting trip on Sunday, and he reports:
"Mill Creek is the most beautiful spot in the Meadowlands this time of year. Just a quick trip around the trail gave me Swamp, American Tree, Fox, White-Throated and Song Sparrows. also N. Shovelers, Green-winged Teal and Gadwall. Carolina Wren, Ruby-crowned Kinglets and Juncos, about 20 Greater Yellowlegs and a beautiful Great Blue Heron."
The Meadowlands Commission restored the site and opened it to the public in 2002. It is a great place to watch birds, take a walk, or just chill.
