From Alan Boyd at Lake Musconetcong
Late this afternoon there were 140 Hooded Mergansers on the lake. Best viewing is from Musconetcong Ave on the Stanhope side of the lake.
Three adult Bald Eagles were also present.
[Editor’s note: Stanhope is in Sussex County but the lake is the border between Morris and Sussex counties. 140 Hooded Mergansers is the most ever recorded in the eBird database for Morris County.]
