Morris County’s only Olive-sided Flycatcher report so far in 2015 comes from a private residence in Roxbury Twp. (Alan Boyd). This is a hard-to-find spring species in the Morris-Somerset area. In 2014, there are two May reports on eBird for Morris County and only one May report for Somerset.

Duke Island Park had 9 Spotted Sandpipers and 8 Least Sandpipers today.

Finderne Wetlands had 1 Semipalmated Plover, 3 Spotted Sandpipers, 1 Greater Yellowlegs and 4 Least Sandpipers (Jeff Ellerbusch).

From Daniel Albohn in Convent Station:
“20 – 30 Cedar Waxwings 7PM – 7:30PM hung out high on the treetops, and then together took off toward Loantaka and other points south.”

These are just some of the reports for today. View local eBird checklists in the mocosocoBirds region via eBird’s Region Explorer. Use the following links:
