This is the Voice of New Jersey Audubon for Tuesday, June 2, 1992 with reports of Curlew Sandpiper, the May 30 pelagic trip out of Barnegat Light, and local reports of interest. A Curlew Sandpiper was at Brigantine NWR May 30 on the North Dike in the West Pool. The May 30 pelagic trip out of Barnegat Light to Hudson Canyon produced Common Loon, Fulmar, Cory's, Greater, and Sooty Shearwaters, Wilson's and Leach's Storm-Petrels, Gannet, Brown Pelican, Red-necked and Red Phalaropes, Pomarine and Parasitic Jaegers, South Polar Skua, Kittiwake, Arctic Tern, Dovekie, and Puffins. Brown Pelicans are present on the sandbars in Barnegat Inlet. Ten Wild Turkeys are being seen daily in the town of Somerset on Cedar Grove Lane between Amwell Rd. and Easton Ave., accessible from Interstate 287. A Yellow-bellied Flycatcher was at Thompson Park in Lincroft, Monmouth Cty., on May 31. A Ring-necked Duck on the pond is still there. Birds in Wawayanda State Park May 30 included Goshawk, Golden-winged, Nashville, and Black-throated Blue Warblers. Golden-winged and "Brewster's" Warblers are present on Deckertown Park in Stokes State Forest, and also on Paradise Rd. off Rt. 23 in the Pequannock Watershed, off the powerline cut. Alder Flycatchers are in at Black River in Chester and also at the Walkill in Sussex Cty. in several places.
