Lark Sparrow in Florham Park
A well-described Lark Sparrow was reported at Florham Park Fields yesterday afternoon (Dominic Garcia-Hall). The Lark Sparrow was not relocated today despite several observers looking at different times during the day.
Only two other second and third-hand records are known for this species in Morris County. This is an unusual date for Lark Sparrow in New Jersey as most occur in the autumn. Interestingly, a well-documented and photographed Lark Sparrow was observed in Brooklyn on May 23-24 of this year.
It is previously mentioned in this space that numerous No Trespassing signs have appeared on the Florham Park Fields property since last year. See below:
Hybrid Warblers continue at Glenhurst Meadows
A “Lawrence’s” Warbler (Blue-winged, or “Brewster’s”, x Golden-winged Warbler hybrid) was seen again at Glenhurst Meadows (Robert Gallucci). A continuing “Brewster’s” Warbler was also found.
