A Pine Siskin at a private feeder on Aug. 9 in Middle Valley, Washington Twp. (Alison Goesling) is an indicator that a shift in the species makeup of the local avifauna is slowly building in momentum.

Northern Waterthrushes are reported almost daily.

Common Nighthawks are setting the stage for a big migration push later this month with singles seen at the Great Swamp NWR on Aug. 9 (Simon Lane) and one in Denville, Aug. 8 (Tim Vogel).

A storm front forecast for Tuesday could further shake the birds up a bit. For those of you lounging during this beautiful summer, it is time to get back to work and go birding.
