Clay-colored Sparrow continues in Florham, Sept. 23, 2012

The Clay-colored Sparrow (CCSP) discovered this afternoon by Jamie Glydon was present as late as 6:00 p.m. The location is the area known as Florham Park Fields on Columbia Turnpike. The CCSP was near the mound by the pond furthest away from Columbia Turnpike. Look for the rusty tractor and that is the general area the CCSP was working. Also, look for the sparrow that doesn’t fly like the Song and Savannah Sparrows it was accompanying. This is the first known record of CCSP in Morris County since the October 2010 record by Simon Lane in the Great Swamp N.W.R. No other records exist for Morris County in the eBird database.
