A reminder: Our special Valentine's Day Weekend Walk is at 10 a.m. this Sunday at 10 a.m.
We will look for wintering waterfowl at DeKorte, plus Rough-legs and Northern Harriers and other raptors on Disposal Road — with a quick optional trip to the Kearny Marsh to look for coots and moorhens.
Who knows? Maybe we'll get lucky and see another Bald Eagle, like last weekend. Or a Ring-necked Pheasant — they've been seen and heard a lot lately.
Word to the wise. Dress warmly. It can get windy. More information on the Tuesday walk will be posted on Monday.
Details on Sunday's walk follow.
Sunday, February 13, 10 a.m.
