Thursday Field Notes, Oct. 3, 2013

Glenhurst Meadows continues to be the birding hotspot of northern Somerset County. A Vesper Sparrow continues at the Wagner Arboretum area. 30 Tree Swallows with 1 Barn Swallow were evening flyovers. 9 warbler species and a growing numbers of sparrows were present in the afternoon along with the usual 4 Red-headed Woodpeckers (Jeff Ellerbusch).

Finderne Wetlands had Solitary Sandpipers (3), Killdeer, Lesser Yellowlegs, Green-winged Teal, and a variety of sparrows today (Jeff Ellerbusch). A modest count of 20 Savannah Sparrows was tallied but remember that one of the highest counts in 2012 in the state, 200, occurred at Finderne on October 20.

6 Red-headed Woodpeckers were easy to find on Troy Meadows Road by the skeet shoot debris. Yellow-rumped Warblers are numerous in Morris County at this time.
