Thanks to the Meadowlands Commission's art director, Mimi Sabatino, the crude DeKorte Duck Map we put together in December has been superseded by a spiffy new improved version, and The Record's Environmental Writer Jim O'Neill did a nifty story on it — it's on Page L-3 of The Record and Page C6 of The Record's sister paper, the Herald News.
We'll post a link when it becomes available.
To help novice birders identify the various species, we have included photos the "Ducky Dozen" — the most-likely-to-be-seen ducks, and what tidal impoundments you are most likely to see them. As we note on the map, "Your duckage may differ."
