Announcing the publication of the List of the Birds of Morris County, NJ, 11-24-2011

Today, Nov. 24, 2011, is the 124th anniversary of the publication of the third and final installment of E. Carleton Thurber’s List of Birds of Morris County, New Jersey which was published by the Morristown weekly the True Democratic Banner in 1887. Thurber’s List was reviewed and referenced in many publications for years afterwards. In honor of this anniversary and in the spirit of creating an historical bridge with the regional bird life of the past the Morris and Somerset County Birding web site, http://www.mocosocobirds.com, is pleased to announce that a new List of the Birds of Morris County is published today on its web site.

Birds of Morris County is the link for the Preface, which gives a brief historical background.
Here are the links for the Lists:
List of the Birds of Morris County (Current)
Thurber’s 1887 List

As the Preface states, this is a dynamically evolving work. As information becomes available, the list will be updated and expanded.

Good birding,

Jonathan Klizas

    Nice job Jon! Thanks for doing this, it’s a great resource. It brought back memories of some old local sightings I’d forgotten about. Have a great Thanksgiving!
