I stopped at Kearny Marsh last week & in spite of all the damage from Sandy, I'm happy to report there are still some signs of life there.
There was a small group of Coot (attached pic), a few Canada Geese, Mallards & a single Common Merganser Hen. Also saw a Merlin by the ball fields on the way out.
Didn't see any Common Gallinule but wouldn't be surprised at all to find one there amongst the Coot. Nice to see anything at all there considering what the place has gone through.
(Thanks, Greg!) (Sorry for the delayed posting…)
