This is the Voice of New Jersey Audubon for Wed July 25 with reports
of HENSLOW'S SPARROW; VESPER, GRASSHOPPER and SAVANNAH SPARROWS; very
few reports from the shore; and local reports of interest.
The HENSLOW'S SPARROW continues at Willowwood, singing in the big
field on the right as you enter (2nd field). Park at the end of the
road and walk back. Before 10 a.m. appears to be best. The bird is
hard to find after that. Reach the area from 206 via 512 west toward
Pottersville, following the signs for Willowwood.
VESPER, GRASSHOPPER and SAVANNAH SPARROWS as well as HORNED LARK and
MEADOWLARK continue at Oberly Road, Alpha, off 519 in Warren County.
GRASSHOPPER and SAVANNAH SPARROWS along with MEADOWLARK are also at
Polhemustown Road in Monmouth County south of the winery in Allentown
off Rte 539. The birds are in the big field on the left before the T
SKIMMERS and FORSTER'S and LEAST TERNS were reported in the Hackensack
Meadowlands this week.
BROWN PELICANS have been off and on at Barnegat Inlet. The max so far
this summer has been 300 in Barnegat Bay.
At Brig July 21 were lots of SHORT-BILLED DOWITCHER and LEAST
SANDPIPERS; about 100 WESTERN SANDPIPERS; STILT SANDPIPER; and
CASPIAN TERN and BALD EAGLE. ORCHARD ORIOLE and BLUE GROSBEAK were in
the area of the barn owl box.
