Ron Shields: Kearny Marsh Report

Ron Shields reports:

"As expected, the water level was extremely high this past weekend.  As a result, numerous Common Moorhen calls were audible but visual contact was difficult as they remained well back in the reeds. 

"Marsh Wrens abounded and were heard throughout the entire area.  Several American Coots were still around as well. 

"The highlight of my trip was a Least Bittern that was flushed from the phragmites near the Route 7 bridge and disappeared just as quick.  A Green Heron (above) was much more cooperative! 

What little mudflat existed held a variety of shorebirds.
