Reminder: Free Nature Walk Tuesday at Mill Creek

Reminder: The free nature walk originally IMG_1659 scheduled for Harrier Meadow in North Arlington tomorrow (Tuesday) at 10 a.m. has been moved to Mill Creek Marsh in Secaucus.

The walk meets at the entrance to the marsh, near the Mill Creek shopping Center (directions are on this blog in the left-hand column).

We’ll walk around the site, looking for wintering waterfowl, raptors and other birds – including a recently seen Eurasian Green-winged Teal. On a scouting trip last week we also saw Northern Pintails and Ruddy Ducks, plus plenty of American Green-winged Teal — and Red Fox tracks.

We also noted that the trails are still at least partly covered with slippery, hard-packed snow, so wear non-skid footwear if you can.

The walk is run by the N.J. Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society.You will have to sign a standard liability release for this event.  Check the Meadowlands Nature Blog,, for last-minute updates.
