Horned Grebe, Breeding Plumage

Copy of IMG_1209
A second Horned Grebe is now at DeKorte, in the Saw Mill Creek Tidal Impoundment. Ron Shields photographed the bird this afternoon.

Best way to see these birds — if they are still around on Tuesday — is on the 10 a.m. free guided walk. We will go out the path beyond the locked gate, usually off limits because of flooding and footing concerns. Details on the walk below.

Horned Grebe at DeKorte: Free Walk Tomorrow

IMG_6094Chris Takacs spotted a Horned Grebe in the southwestern corner of Teal Pool — can be seen with a spotting scope from the Lyndhurst Nature IMG_6097 Reserve part of DeKorte. (Thanks, Chris!)

Note: The trail is closed just past the reserve because of bad footing and flooding. We'll keep track of the bird and let you know if it is seen in a more-accessible place.

The Meadowlands Commission and Bergen County Audubon Society are sponsoring a DeKorte walk tomorrow at 10 a.m. at DeKorte, and we will look for it then as well.

Let's hope it sticks around.
