This is the Voice of NJ Audubon for Wed., July 24 with reports of
BAND-RUMPED STORM-PETREL, BROWN PELICAN, MARBLED GODWIT, and
seasonal and local reports.
BAND-RUMPED STORM-PETREL was being seen as late as Wed., July 17
in Delaware Bay waters off Cumberland County at Maurice River
cove near East Point. East Point Light may be a vantage point.
WILSON'S STORM-PETREL is also being seen in Cumberland Co.
BROWN PELICANS were seen this week at Barnegat Inlet July 21 (about
20 birds), July 19 at Lavalette, and Tuckerton July 22 (five).
A MARBLED GODWIT was seen near the SE corner of Brig flying toward
the west pool on July 20. Few shorebirds were there that day; lots
of GULL-BILLED TERNS were on the south and north dikes.
The Hackensack Meadowlands Env. Center area July 22 had SKIMMER,
LEAST TERN and small flocks of SEMIPALMATED SANDPIPER, LESSER
YELLOWLEGS and a few SPOTTED SANDPIPERS. Kearny East had broods
of PIED-BILLED GREBE, AM. COOT, COM. MOORHEN and GADWALL; lots
of LEAST TERNS and CORMORANTS; and a PEREGRINE, presumably from
the Kearny nest.
