Yellow-throated Warbler in Franklin Township

The Yellow-throated Warbler discovered yesterday (see this post) continues as of this morning near the Rose Garden parking lot of Colonial Park, Franklin Township. The garden driveway is on the west side of Metlar’s Road slightly south of the main entrance for Colonial Park. This Setophaga warbler was singing continuously at 6:20 this morning for the entire thirty minutes this observer was present.

 Gulls in Hillsborough Twp.

4 Bonaparte’s, 21 Ring-billed, 4 Herring and 1 Lesser Black-backed Gull(s) were at River Road, Hillsborough near the Norz Farm (Jeff Ellerbusch). This is a productive gull site in 2014 which has produced 7 species of gulls so far: Bonaparte’s, Laughing, Ring-billed, Herring, Iceland, Lesser Black-backed and Great Black-backed. Add the Glaucous Gull seen in January along Homestead Road and Hillsborough has an impressive gull list for an inland site without any sizable bodies of water.

At Opie Road, Branchburg Twp.: 7 Pectoral Sandpipers, 1 Lesser and 3 Greater Yellowlegs (J. Ellerbusch). They were absent by the afternoon – Editor.
