Mill Creek Marsh Walk: The Belated Full List

We had a great walk last Tuesday at Mill Creek Marsh — though it did feel a tad too much like summer.

The walk, sponsored by the Bergen County Audubon Society and the N.J. Meadowlands Commission, featured 34 species of birds — including four species of shorebirds — plus Millie the honey bear pictured above.

She has been hanging out at the marsh for nearly a month, and seems fairly harmless.

 Full list, and a couple more pictures, follow.


Some of the walk's participants can be seen in this incredibly artsy photo if you squint real hard.
