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, meadowblog.net, for last-minute updates.
