Bird Report 021011: Kearny Marsh

IMG_3611 IMG_3589
A quick Thursday afternoon trip to the Kearny Marsh in advance of Sunday's walk found 15+ American Coots, several Common Mergs (skittish as ever), 4 Hooded Mergs, a Red-tail, a Great Blue Heron and Black Ducks among the Mallards and Canada Geese. Plus lots of American Crows — always good to see.

Note: Access is limited to piles of plowed snow. You have to climb up a 5-foot-high snow embankment to get to the marsh. Footing wasn't too bad but did require some dexterity.

    Besides many of the above, we were lucky enough to see the Moorhen plodding about after the NJMC/BCAS walk at DeKorte on Sunday.
