Tomorrow (Tuesday): Mill Creek Marsh, Free Guided Walk

Our next free guided walk is Tuesday at 10 a.m. at Mill Creek Marsh in Secaucus — one of those out-of-the-way places in the middle of everything (access is through a shopping mall parking lot).

The marsh is famous for its centuries-old Atlantic Cedar stumps (above), still resisting rot after all these years.

Dennis Cheeseman, who took the photos that accompany this post, writes: "I went over there today [Thursday]. It is a great spot. 

   "Lots of yellowlegs (left), teal (left), shovelers out there as well as a few harriers."

Details follow.

    That’s a pretty unique photo. I can’t say that I’ve ever seen a yellowlegs and teal perched together on a cedar log. Cool.
