The Red-throated Loon at Budd Lake found earlier this morning by Tom Halliwell was still there at 11:40. It was distant and in the middle of the lake. This is the only report of a Red-throated Loon in Morris County in 2012.
2 Red-breasted Mergansers and a Common Loon made up for the lack of species diversity at Lake Parsipanny this afternoon. This is only the second record of Red-breasted Merganser for Morris County in 2012. The first was on April 1 at the same location.
