Northern Waterthrush and other warblers, Apr. 24, 2013

The first Northern Waterthrush of 2013 in the mocosocoBirds region was found early this morning along Pleasant Plains Road, Great Swamp NWR. There was an apparent movement of this species overnight. eBird reports from Glenhurst Meadows (David Bernstein), Scherman Hoffman Sanctuary in Bernardsville and scattered others in New Jersey bear this out.

A Prairie Warbler was singing in the cedars of Ann Van Mittlesworth Park, Hillsborough Twp.

From Ken Hart:
Black-and-white Warbler spotted along Black River Rd. in Long Valley this morning, along with Blue-headed Vireo and continuing Louisiana Waterthrush and Red-breasted Nuthatch.

From Leslie Webster:
The beautiful morning in Loantaka Brook Reservation woods brought to song a small group of Black-throated Green Warblers, along with at least three Black-and-white Warblers. Palms, Yellow-rumped and a Louisiana Waterthrush were also present. At Kitchell Pond, some Yellow Warblers had arrived. A Gray Catbird was meowing in the nearby woods, a harbinger of more to come, undoubtedly. Two Green-winged Teal and two Wood Ducks were on the water.
