Ron Shields says:

A trip into the Kearny Marsh yielded fantastic results this past weekend.  
As many as Five ospreys were perched at the same time on the old telegraph poles that still line the abandoned Erie Railroad right-of-way along the southern boundary.

In addition, numerous Black-crowned Night Herons (mainly adults) were observed throughout the area and a pair of Red-tailed Hawks flew overhead.  The water level is still high resulting in limited shorebird action.

A Common Yellowthroat and several Wood Ducks were a nice change of pace.

(Thanks, Ron!)
