Mud Flats Again at DeKorte: Soras

P1000994 For this weekend's Bird Fest, the Meadowlands Commission's Brett Bragin has lowered the water level in the Shorebird Pool at DeKorte Park.

The water level is now a few inches lower than it was for Kevin Karlson Day last month and — barring any heavy rains — it should remain thereabouts through the weekend.

[We have already gotten reports of two Sora sightings this morning from the Marsh Discovery Trail.]

We should get more shorebirds overall but when it is high tide nearby, the new mudflats at the Shorebird Pool should be particularly attractive.

In case you are wondering, high tide Thursday is around 1 p.m. High tide Friday is around 2 p.m. High tide for Bird Fest is around 3 p.m.
