Sunday’s Walk: The Full List

We had a nice turnout for our first Sunday-of-the-Year Walk at DeKorte Park despite the fog and otherwise less-than-ideal weather — more than 20 people and more than 20 species.

Highlights included two Long-tailed Ducks and a Goldeneye. (Thanks to Julie McCall for the list, Beth Goldberg for the pix, and everyone for participating.)
