Attached are some images from earlier this week. A sizable float of Ruddy Ducks (below) was a welcomed surprise, and the Blue-winged Teals (above) added a splash of color to the marsh.
Raptors in the form of Red-tailed Hawks, harriers and Osprey made their presence known as well.
Don Torino of Bergen County Audubon loves Mill Creek Marsh so much he talked the Meadowlands Commission into co-sponsoring a free "bonus" walk this month. The walk begins at 10 a.m. at the entrance to Mill Creek Marsh. Directions are on the left-hand column of this blog.
We thought we'd post the full bird list from the N.J. Meadands Commission/Bergen County Audubon Society walk at DeKorte Park on Tueesday.
After a few momentary sightings during the walk, we finally got some decent looks at a Brown Creeper — pretty cool bird.
Full list and four more pics follow.
