Ray Duffy reports:
"This AM I got my first of year Orchard Oriole when visiting the bird banding at Harrier Meadow.
"In the afternoon, I took twenty minutes around DeKorte around 2:30pm, I got my first of year semipalmated sandpipers on the exposed mud during low tide.
"At 6:45, I visited Mill Creek Marsh. I found 2 families of Mallard ducklings, one group of 8 and one group of about 4.
"Schmidt’s Woods had a Northern Waterthrush. Other unfortunate arrivals for the year were ticks and mosquitoes." (Thanks, Ray!)
