Mocosoco Birds publishes reports of interesting birds and nature-related happenings in the New Jersey counties of Morris and Somerset. Why these two counties? Northern Somerset and southern Morris counties could secede and become a separate county, they are that similar in habitat, economic demographic and location. Those who live in one of these counties invariably spends time in the other. A case in point: the author of this blog, Jonathan Klizas, lives in Morris County and teaches in Somerset County and spends a lot of time birding in both.
