A Glossy Ibis was found at the north field of Birchwood Manor on Jefferson Road in Whippany early this evening by birder extraordinaire and soon-to-be-former Morris County resident Jamie “Say’s Phoebe” Glydon. Glossy Ibis is a species that may be reported once or twice a year in Morris County, if at all. This same field has had American Pipits, Eastern Meadowlarks, various sparrow species such as Vesper, Savannah and White-crowned in the past. The Glossy Ibis left before other birders arrived but was relocated later, assuming it is the same individual, at Lake Parsippany by Simon Lane. Currently in close proximity in the Parsippany area are the following:

  • Two Black-crowned Night-Herons at Jefferson Road Pond
  • Long-tailed Ducks, Red-breasted Mergansers and other waterfowl at Lake Parsippany
  • Common Loons at Boonton Reservoir and Lake Parsippany
  • White-winged Scoter, twice in the past week at Boonton Reservoir
  • A Glossy Ibis…somewhere.
