A season at an end?, May 26, 2015

An Acadian Flycatcher was a highlight in the Great Swamp NWR yesterday, May 25. Other than that and a flurry of Mourning Warblers at Lord Stirling Park on Saturday, May 24, spring migration has petered out in Morris and Somerset Counties. Frankly, it was not much to begin with. Yes, breeders are in many of their usual locations, but by all accounts, this is the poorest spring with regards to variety and number of migrants that many observers remember.

    Dear Jonathan,

    I am new to birding, so I’m not sure what a good migration is. I would like to thank you for all of your hard work posting mocosoco birds. I follow it every day. I have learned about new birding places and have had a wonderful time looking for the birds you’ve seen.

    Next year, I hope to get to more of the places you mention, to see what I’m sure will be a great migration.

    Have a wonderful summer. There are still birds around!

    Louise Wilkens
