Three Buff-breasted Sandpipers were at Selody Sod Farm, Montgomery Twp. this morning as well as the usual 65+ Killdeer. Two American Golden-Plovers were present as of yesterday (David Bernstein) and could still be in the area. All of these birds were viewed in the first and second sod fields south of Skillman Road near its intersection with Belle Mead-Blawenburg Rd. (CR601).

The bird migration radar looked outstanding as dawn approached this morning, but the lack of actual migrants in the mocosocoBirds area proved otherwise. An exception was an Olive-sided Flycatcher at Chimney Rock (Jeff Ellerbusch, Roger Dreyling).


Ivan Kossak reports 7 warbler species at Two Bridges, Lincoln Park for a total of 12 species at that location for the week.


Connecticut Warbler was seen and photographed yesterday, Sept. 1, at Glenhurst Meadows (Jason Denesevich). This is an early record, and the only one known for New Jersey so far this season.

  1. Errata: The Olive-sided Flycatcher at Chimney Rock was viewed by Roger Dreyling, not Roger Johnson as originally posted.
