Monday Bird Notes, Sep. 8, 2014

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.
