2 Vesper Sparrows turned up at Veteran’s Memorial Park, Whippany this morning for the first time this year (Jamie Glydon). This is ten days later than last year at the same location.
Jamie found another Vesper Sparrow at Troy Meadows in the area near the old trap shoot debris. 1 Red-headed Woodpecker was also observed.
A juvenile Red-headed Woodpecker was found in Florham Park as described by Mike Ostrow: “Looks like at least one of the Red-headed Woodpeckers escaped from Troy Meadows. Saw a juve in a tree right next to the Passaic River south of Columbia Tpk.”
A juvenile Golden Eagle flew over the Chimney Rock Hawk Watch late this afternoon (many obs.). This is the second Golden Eagle of the week at The Rock. A Red-headed Woodpecker was seen at the parking lot as well as the first Fox Sparrow reported in the mocosocoBirds region this season (Chris Aquila).
