The Mill Creek Marsh Walk: The Full List

We had 33 species on our Third-Tuesday Walk at once-again-beautiful Mill Creek Marsh.

The day began drearily but kept getting sunnier as the day progressed. Highlights included a Peregrine, Northern Harrier, Tree Sparrows and all sorts of ducks.

Mill Creek Marsh looked terrific — thanks in large part to all the folks who have pitched in to clean up the trails after Hurricane Sandy.

Full list follows (thanks, Denise!).
