Ray Duffy reports: "I was birding around DeKorte around 11:30 a.m. A Least Bittern was hanging out on the edge of one of the phragmite islands viewable from the boardwalk around the Visitor's Center.
"I also noticed my first Laughing Gulls in Bergen Co of the year with about a dozen or so adult plummage birds hanging out on the mudflats of the Saw Mill Creek WMA impoundment.
"After leaving the park, I stopped at the Clay Avenue Marsh in Lyndhurst and found a Pectoral Sandpiper mixed in with some Semipalmated Sandpipers and Killdeer."
