Another early Rusty Blackbird was found today, this time in the Great Swamp on Pleasant Plains Road (Chuck Hantis).
Red-headed Woodpeckers (RHWO) continue their movement into the mocosocoBirds area. Another RHWO was found today at Pyramid Mountain Natural Historic Area (Dave Blinder). The RHWO was in a swampy area across Boonton Avenue from the visitor’s center. There were possibly more present than the one individual photographed.
Both the juvenile Black-crowned and Yellow-crowned Night-Herons were viewed today at Jefferson Road Pond (Julie Buechner). This is the 18th day for the Yellow-crowned Night-Heron. Who knows how long it may have been here before it was found on September 9.
