Today’s MCM Walk: The Full List


Had a chilly and windy Third-Tuesday Guided Walk in Mill Creek Marsh this morning with Bergen County Audubon Society.

Did not see the Hudsonian Godwit, the Orange-crowned Warbler or the Clay-colored Sparrow (too cold and windy?), but the walk was invigorating  and we did see a Hermit Thrush toward the end.  Some Greater Yellowlegs still hanging around as well.

    I was lucky enough to see the Godwit earlier this month, it was in a really difficult spot to find! I walked right past it and only saw it on my way out. I wish I could have made the walk.
