Bonaparte’s Gull at Lake Musconetcong
Tom Halliwell and Alan Boyd viewed a startlingly early immature Bonaparte’s Gull at Lake Musconetcong this morning. Tom says it is the earliest he has seen one at the lake.
Selody Sod Farm
An American Golden-Plover and an immature Buff-breasted Sandpiper continue at Selody Sod Farm, Montgomery Twp. (Jeff Ellerbusch, J. Klizas). Numerous Killdeer and single digit Least Sandpipers are all that remain from yesterday’s storm-related fallout. Interestingly, Jeff noted that the birds present today are the same that were at Selody before yesterday’s storm. All the storm-induced birds are gone.

A good flight of Common Nighthawks this evening (Monday) over the Great Swamp with 136 counted between 6 – 7 pm from my deck on Whitebridge Rd.
