Sunday’s Mill Creek Marsh Walk: The Full List

We had a great walk at Mill Creek Marsh, with 20 folks divided into two groups. All told, we had 40 species. The full list is below.

Two photographer/birders — Sandy Sorkin and Jeff Nicol — shared some images with us, which we are posting here, along with a link to Sandy's Picasa Web page here, which has some shots of a Saltmarsh Sharp-tailed Sparrow that Sandy photographed at Mill Creek on sunday morning.

Thanks to all who participated, with a special thanks to Sandy (for the partial group shot and Osprey shot) and Jeff (for the Green-winged Teal and Gadwall shots). The event was sponsored by the Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society.
