Voice of New Jersey Audubon - 7/13/1990
This is the Voice of New Jersey Audubon -- update for Friday July 13 1990, at 11:30 am. A MONGOLIAN PLOVER was identified and photographed at 26th St., Wildwood, by two observers, this morning, July 13, between 8 and 10:30 am. The bird was found on the bayside at low tide. Rising tide will cover the flats and where it will go, nobody knows. Exit the Garden State Parkway at Wildwood, take Park Blvd. to 26th St.; at the intersection of Park Blvd. and 26th, go West on 26th St. to the end; go past the B&E Marina and look for the bird on the bayside mudflats. More pedestrian sightings follow: BROWN PELICANS were seen in Cape May and Barnegat Light. A SCISSOR-TAILED FLYCATCHER was reported heading east over Milepost 71 on the Garden State Parkway on July 7. A RED-THROATED LOON in breeding plumage continues at Merrill Creek [Reservoir]. COMMON LOONS were also at Merrill Creek, and at Sandy Hook this week; also at Sandy Hook RED-BREASTED MERGANSER and BRANT were found this week.
