Osprey, American Pipits, Mar. 14, 2015

The first Osprey of 2014 in Somerset County was viewed this afternoon by Jeff Ellerbusch at the Delaware and Raritan Canal Towpath. Common Goldeneye numbers are shrinking but are still at an impressive 47. 10 Red-breasted Mergansers continue this species more than usual presence in the mocosocoBirds area this winter.
