January 26 - Hatfield Swamp

Since I only had a few hours free today I paid a visit to the Hatfield Swamp Area in Essex County.  This remnant of the glacial Lake Passaic is a fine spot for Woodpeckers and Owls.  I did see several species of Woodpeckers, and lots of them (!)  before I was able to get terrific views of a Northern Saw-Whet Owl.
