The Jacques Lane access to Six Mile Run, Franklin Township continues to be a hot spot for White-eyed Vireos and Prairie Warblers. Rose-breasted Grosbeaks and Scarlet Tanager add to the list (Zach Batren).
3 Bobolinks were near the headquarters on Pleasant Plains Road in the Great Swamp NWR, early this evening (Simon Lane).
Holly Dunbar eBirded a White-eyed Vireo from Pleasant Plains Rd. Both the White-eyed Vireo and the Bobolinks are firsts in 2013 for Morris County.
From Ken Hart:
Orchard Orioles were present at the Robert J. Stahl Natural Area in Bedminster late this afternoon– and a lot of dog ticks. No repairs have been done to the fallen Martin gourds, or the Wood Duck box laying down in one of the ponds.
From Leslie Webster:
Wood Thrushes have finally arrived in Loantaka Brook Reservation! Well, one, anyway. The Gray Catbird population is increasing. Three were establishing territory on the west end of Kitchell Pond. Chimney Swifts, Barn Swallows and Tree Swallows were flying low this morning. I’ve not seen any Northern Rough-winged Swallows for the past couple of weeks.
