Here are a few reports from the mocosocoBirds region as the latest winter storm chugs up the Atlantic coast preparing to dump another 6-12 inches of white stuff on an already frozen snowscape.
4 Red-headed Woodpeckers were reported from Troy Meadows this afternoon (Julie Buechner).
As is the case most of this winter, a Chipping Sparrow continues at Zach Batren’s feeder in Franklin Township.
A Gray Catbird continues on White Bridge Road, Great Swamp NWR through February 11 (David Bernstein).
4 Common Goldeneye joined Canada Geese, Mallards, Am. Black Ducks, 1 Green-winged Teal, 20 Ring-necked Ducks, 12 Bufflehead, 2 Hooded Mergansers and 2 Common Mergansers at Waterloo Lakes along the Musconetcong River on Feb. 10 (Robert Templin).
American Robins are virtually everywhere at the current time. The individual below was enjoying a drink at the Great Swamp NWR this afternoon.
Be safe and be warm.
Why isn’t that an Am. Tree Sparrow? I though Chipping Sparrows lost the rufous crown in winter; and note the light bill. The spot on the breast is not visible, but that could just be the angle of the picture. Tree Sparrow is more likely in winter anyway. Ted Chase Franklin Twp
