Wednesday Bird Notes, July 23, 2014

Parsippany’s Yellow-crowned Night-Heron is seen sporadically lately. It is probably in the dense foliage of the island at Jefferson Road Pond if it is not in the two bridges area of the south end of the pond. Chuck Hantis caught it taking a dip on July 20 in the following photos.

Bird reports are slowing down as we get deeper into summer. mocosocoBirds posts will be sporadic for the next few weeks.

Two White-eyed Vireos are summering in the Washington Valley section of Morris Township. This is a trend for the past few years. One is at the Moody Farm along the asphalt trail. The second is along the Patriots Path section of Whitehead Road.
