DeKorte Park at Dusk

Ron Shields reports:

With an incoming tide, the Saw Mill Creek Trail was extremely active one night last week just before dusk. 

Highlights included at least ten Black-crowned Night Herons huddled on the mudflats at the beginning of the trail, a flyover Osprey with the catch of the day, a Gray Ghost retreating to Harrier Meadow, three Black Skimmers (7:45PM) that made several passes throughout the impoundments, and a Peregrine Falcon that made a few unsuccessful attempts at supper before catching and devouring a shorebird. 

With all that, it was the low pressure clouds and the light they reflected that really stole the show for me.
