This morning, Duke Farms had Vesper Sparrow, 18 Rusty Blackbirds in a single flock, 7 American Pipits, 2 Eastern Meadowlarks, 12 White-crowned Sparrows and other species typical of the area (Jeff Ellerbusch).
From Julie Buechner:
A Northern Shoveler, Greater Yellowlegs, and 3 Pectoral Sandpipers were added to the mix at Melanie Lane Wetlands today. [Editor’s note: Julie also reports 5 Killdeer, Lesser Yellowlegs, No. Pintail, Green-winged Teal, Great Egret, etc.]
Two Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers, a Merlin, White-throated, Song and Swamp Sparrows, 7 Wild Turkey and others were at Troy Meadows on the section of Patriots Path that begins south of Troy Road near the Whippany River and loops back to Troy Road near Smith’s Ditch. A new map of birding locations at Troy Meadows is here. Remember that the north and eastern sections of Troy Meadows are currently a construction zone for the Susquehanna-Roseland power line project (J. Klizas)
