The migrants aren’t stopping in Morris and Somerset Counties recently. Based on the immediate weather forecast, they probably will not until sometime this coming weekend.
Chimney Rock had a few warblers this morning: Black-and-white, American Redstart, Cape May, Northern Parula, Chestnut-sided, Pine and Black-throated Green. A Swainson’s Thrush put in an appearance (Jeff Ellerbusch).
From Roger Johnson at the Lincoln Park Gravel Pits: “8 Killdeer, 2 Least Sandpiper, 1 Lesser Yellowlegs, 5 Green Herons, 6 Great Egrets, 8 Great Blue Herons. I did not see any Little Blue Herons. Also, 1 Northern Waterthrush, 1 Common Yellowthroat and 4 Palm Warblers.”
Chuck Hantis photographed the following American Kestrel at Melanie Lane Wetlands yesterday. At least 3 Little Blue Herons continue there.
