Jeff Ellerbusch reports two male and two female Dickcissels at Negri-Nepote Grasslands in Franklin Township this morning. Is this the first report of a second male? Both males were singing and chasing the females.
A visit to the southeast side of Deerhaven Lake in Jefferson Township revealed a complete panoramic view of the heronry. More herons are here than originally tallied. At least 40 Great Blue Herons are at this locale. A Great Egret flew in and roosted with the group. A Barred Owl was seen at the wood’s edge leading to the lake. Deerhaven Lake is part of the Newark-Pequannock Watershed and a permit is required for entry.
