DeKorte Park: Bird Preview

Did a quick walk around Lyndhurst Nature Reserve in DeKorte Park yesterday to see what might be around for Sunday's Birding for Beginners Class."

Had 29 species in 30 minutes, including the first (of a bazillion) Yellow-rumped Warblers and some of those darn Brown-headed Cowbirds.

(A Brown-headed Cowbird on Friday the 13th — what could be better luck?)

Full list follows.
