MONK PARAKEETS, Ridgefield When you reach Railroad Avenue, head south under Hendricks Causeway Bridge. Park car near the bridge and listen; Monk Parakeets live in nests on underside of the bridge.
KEARNY FRESH-WATER MARSH, Kearny Camman Drive is the road the loops around Gunnell Oval; the marsh is to the east of the easternmost corner of the drive. You can launch kayaks and canoes at this location.
Had a small raft of Canvasbacks on Monday at lunchtime in the Saw Mill Creek mud flats section of DeKorte Park. First raft we've seen this season -- coinciding with some ice along the edges of the Shorebird Pool.
Also has Ruddies, Buffleheads, N. Pintails and N. Shovelers.
