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:
