An American Golden Plover, the first of the season in Somerset County, was reported early this evening from Selody Sod Farm, Montgomery Township. The plover was viewed from Skillman Road near Highfield Road (Nancy Gallagher, Mark Harris).
An adult Red-headed Woodpecker (RHWO) was seen yesterday at the snag area near the old trap shoot at Troy Meadows (Roger Johnson). The RHWO was seen again this morning at the same location (J. Klizas). Later in the morning, what was thought to be the same individual was seen near the gas line on Troy Meadows Road.
Early in the afternoon, the adult RHWO was seen again near the trap shoot (Chris Thomas) suggesting that there are at least two adults currently at Troy Meadows unless one is covering a very large area. Considering the historical attraction of Troy Meadows to RHWO, there may be more in the extensive snag groves.
A Yellow-bellied Flycatcher was reported from Glenhurst Meadows today (Chris Thomas). Chris’s ID photo is below.
