Blue-Winged Teal Spotted at Mill Creek Marsh

Blue-Winged Teal from Mill Crk Marsh Apr 23 2016 SIGNED Liberty Valance

While Green-Winged Teal are common in North Jersey for much of the year, Blue-Winged Teal … not so much. So we were very excited to get this photo from Liberty Valance via Mickey Raine of the migratory bird she saw at Mill Creek Marsh on Saturday. Ray Duffy spotted the male – the female was nowhere in sight – and let Liberty know as they passed each other on the Mill Creek Marsh trail.

Great teamwork and a reminder why it’s always great to head out to the Meadowlands, as you just might catch a glimpse of a rare bird for these parts.
