A light morph Rough-legged Hawk hunted the fields of the Great Swamp NWR along Pleasant Plains Rd. this afternoon (Chuck Hantis, Steve Kuitems).
mocosocoBirds commented on the dearth of Common Grackles this winter in a recent post, here. They are scarce no more.
Small groups were seen in Hillsborough Twp. this afternoon. A mini-blast of Common Grackles, along with much smaller amounts of Red-winged Blackbirds and Brown-headed Cowbirds, was seen near Black Brook along White Bridge Road in the Great Swamp NWR. The harshness of winter is beginning to seem like a long time ago.
Red-winged Blackbird song is slowly starting to fill the air.
