Blue Grosbeak in Florham Park, May 28, 2014

A singing Blue Grosbeak was found early this evening at the Florham Park Fields. Following is a poor quality sound recording made in the wind with an iPhone:

The Blue Grosbeak was across from the rear pond on the airport side of the field before moving across the driveway near the pond. One was heard at this same location last year but apparently did not stay.


This afternoon, the Fish Tract in Florham Park was host to 9 Great Egrets, 5 Great Blue Herons, 2 Green Herons, 3 Killdeer, 4 Spotted Sandpipers, 1 Solitary Sandpiper, 2 Greater Yellowlegs and 3 Least Sandpipers. Considering the scarcity of shorebird habitat in Morris County, today’s list may cause a name change of Fish Tract to “Little Brig”.

The Prothonotary Warblers of Somerset County continue with the 2 nesters at Lord Stirling Park (John J. Collins) and the single bird at Black River Road south of Long Lane in Bedminster Township (Alan Boyd).
