First Tuesday Noon Walk, Marsh Discovery Trail

We had a small group for our inaugural weekday noon Marsh Discovery IMG_7159 Trail walk, but small groups often mean good birding.
   We had lots of good shorebirds (including Dunlins) and scads of peeps — plus Ruddies and a Bufflehead.
   Also some really nice views of perched Barn Swallows.   Later went out to Harrier Meadow and got nice looks at the Little Blue, two Northern Shovelers and a (distant) Blue-winged Teal.
   We'll try agian on Thursday.
