Voice of New Jersey Audubon - 3/10/1993
This is the Voice of New Jersey Audubon for Wednesday, Mar. 10, 1993, at noon, with reports of ROCK WREN, RAZORBILL, RED-NECKED GREBE, LESSER BLACK-BACKED & BLACK-HEADED GULLS, SHORT-EARED OWLS, EURASIAN WIGEON, and local reports. The ROCK WREN was still at 405 Lincoln Ave. in Cape May Point as of today, March 10. The COMMON CRANE is still in the Compromise Rd. area of Salem Co., but it is looking more and more like the NY escaped bird of the past few years, which also had an injured foot. A RAZORBILL and a KITTIWAKE were at Manasquan Inlet March 3. A LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULL was at Assunpink March 7. BLACK-HEADED GULL was seen this week at the Salem Nuclear Plant on March 7, and also in South Amboy on March 6, visible on the flats from the Railroad track. SHORT-EARED OWLS were at Brigantine NWR March 6 and also on March 2-3 at Ridge Rd., in Everittstown, Hunterdon County. From Interstate 78 take Rt. 513 south to Everittstown, then go south on Rt. 519 to Ridge Rd. Go right on Ridge Rd. four-tenths of a mile to a farm field on the left; 5:30 PM on is best. Another SHORT-EAR was at Mt. Laurel on March 5, at the corner of Hainesport and the Moorestown-Mt. Laurel Rd. Two RED-NECKED GREBES were on the Delaware at Delanco on March 7 off Delaware Ave., with a flock of Canvasbacks. Another has been daily this week at Round Valley with 2 Horned Grebes and several Common Loons, off the campers' parking lot where the eagles are seen. Go through the tollgate, right at the bottom, down the hill to the end. Also there this week, there were up to 4 EAGLES, 1 OLDSQUAW, Com. Merganser, Wood Duck, Ring-necked Duck, and Bufflehead. In Burlington Co., the wintering BROADWINGED HAWK resurfaced at the ball field at Lenape High School on Hartford Rd. in Medford, between Rt. 70 and Church Rd. Horned Larks and Pipits were at Mannington Marsh, Salem Co. this week. A EURASIAN WIGEON was at the Belmar Marina during the week. Ring-necked Duck, Horned Lark, Fox Sparrow, Meadowlark, Harrier, all Blackbirds, Green-winged Teal, Pintail, Gadwall, and Wood Duck were all well reported moving this week.
