"Here are some images of several close encounters in the Kearny Marsh on Sunday afternoon.
"The Northern Harrier was a fly-by right off my bow and the plovers were photographed within an oar's reach of my lens. The Black-bellied Plover was extremely cooperative.
"The Keegan landfill held at least seven kestrels both hover-hunting and perched on the surrounding poles.
"Wading birds abounded, including several Green Herons."
Plover pix follow. (Thanks, Ron!)
