Voice of New Jersey Audubon - 3/16/1993
This is the Voice of New Jersey Audubon for Tuesday, Mar. 16, 1993, at 3 pm, with reports of EURASIAN WIGEON, GOSHAWK, RED-NECKED GREBE, ICELAND GULL, and seasonal and local reports. No word yet on whether the ROCK WREN in Cape May survived the snow massacre of March 13. Most of these reports predate the blizzard. EURASIAN WIGEON was at Lake Takanassee on march 10. WHITE-CROWNED SPARROWS were at Thompson Park, Monmouth Co., on Rt. 520 opposite the Christian Brothers Academy, on March 11. WOODCOCK were on the lawn in Ocean Ave. in Deal on March 15. A SORA was rescued from a snowdrift in Edgeboro Park, Burlington Co., on March 15. A GOSHAWK was reported in Blairstown during the week. A RED-NECKED GREBE was still at Round Valley reservoir just prior to the blizzard. An ICELAND GULL was at Brady Bridge, Lake Hopatcong, on March 10. Two TURKEYS were at Scherman-Hoffman on March 15. One hundred HORNED LARKS continue on Herbert Rd. at the entrance to Assunpink. A YELLOW-HEADED BLACKBIRD was briefly at a feeder in Willingboro, Burlington Co., March 14. FOX SPARROW, RUSTY BLACKBIRD, FLICKER & ROBIN were among the migrants reported at feeders during the storm. The BARRED OWL is being seen occasionally at the elbow on Pleasant Plains Rd. in Great Swamp, the usual place. Mountain Lake in Warren Co. on March 10 had PIED-BILLED GREBE, RING-NECKED DUCK, and Blue Goose. The Voice of NJ Audubon [(908) 766-2661] is a regular weekly report on birding in New Jersey.
