DeKorte Update: Bird Report After the Snow


    DeKorte Park is open, and some of the trails look pretty good for cross-country skiing — an occasional bare patch in some places but drifts up to 16 inches in others.
     Birding was quite good after lunch along the Lyndhurst Nature Reserve and the Saw Mill Trail heading out toward the Turnpike.
   Ducks are still big — many Canvasback, Ruddy, Bufflehead, Northern Pintail, occasional Shoveler and Gadwall. Got a glimpse of that lone female Goldeneye way out along the trail as she swam away.
   Ducks were fairly cooperative especially a male Northern Pintail who flew by (below).
   Did not see any Bald Eagles but did have a harrier hunting over the Lyndhurst Nature Reserve.
