The first Sunday-of-the-Month Nature Walk will be held at 10 a.m. on April 4 at DeKorte Park. (Note: The locale has been switched because of Storm Damage to Mill Creek Marsh.)
Details follow. (And, no, we will not look for eggs.)
We shot this photo late one rainy day last week of a distant duck. We were thinking it was a Blue-winged Teal, but a sharp-eyed reader suggested a female Greater Scaup. (Sounds good to us; thanks, Rosemarie.) Any other theories?
Other Tuesday Teasers are here. As we get into bird-banding season, we'll try to ramp up this feature again.
We recently wrote a column for The South Bergenite about one of our favorite birding spots, Disposal Road, which was until recently (as far as we know) the three-month home base for a Northern Shrike. Here's the column:

For most people, several spots managed by the Meadowlands Commission come to mind – from Mill Creek Marsh in Secaucus to DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst to the Kearny Marsh.
But for the past few months, a little-known two-lane road named Disposal Road just might hold the crown.
