Ron Shields’ Kearny Marsh Report

Ron writes:
The Kearny Marsh was on fire this weekend. Action included a  splendid variety of ducks, herons and raptors that included flyovers by an adult Bald Eagle, Red-tailed hawks and several Am. Kestrels. 

"A six-pack of pecs (Pectoral Sandpipers) put on quite a show as they allowed extremely close-up encounters.

"But the clear winner was a juvenile Peregrine Falcon that landed on a mudflat a few feet off the bow my kayak in an unsuccessful attempt to secure a pectoral sandpiper for dinner.  Startling and exhilarating to say the least!

"The weekend closed with another beautiful sunset!"

More of Ron's pix, including that sunset and a Pied-billed Grebe, follow.  (Thanks, Ron!)
