Voice of New Jersey Audubon - 7/28/1993
This is the voice of NJ Audubon for Wednesday, July 28 at 1 PM with reports of WHISKERED TERN in Delaware, and in NJ WHITE-FACED IBIS, in and out-of-season local reports, and some exotic waterfowl. The WHISKERED TERN in Delaware continues at the Ted Harvey Wildlife Management Area in Delaware, having been reported July 24, 25, and 26 through 5:30 PM, mornings in the north impoundment, afternoons in the south impoundment. From Rts. 9 and 113 near Dover, take Rt. 9 south to the road for Kitts Hummock; turn east and go 2 mile; turn right on a gravel road at a sign for the Logan Tract of the Ted Harvey WMA. About 1/2 mile after you pass the house bear left and go 1 mile to the parking area. Also there are WHITE-WINGED TERN and WHITE IBIS. In New Jersey, 2 WHITE-FACED IBIS were at Brigantine NWR July 25, at the end of the north dike, west pool, around noon. Interesting local discoveries this week included a PINE SISKIN July 22 only at a feeder in Rockaway; BLACK VULTURE nest on Schooley's Mountain; a SHARPSHIN at a house in Livingston July 26, and a belated report of an UPLAND SANDPIPER at Essex County Airport on July 12. Exotics are rife this summer, apparently; a BLACK SWAN is reported near the Hackensack Meadowlands Environmental Center in Lyndhurst; a RUDDY SHELDUCK has been reported on Boonton Reservoir; and, the odd couple award of the week, a WHITE-RUMPED SANDPIPER and an ORINOCO GOOSE in Thompson Park in Jamesburg, Middlesex Co., off Rt. 522 on a local street. The Voice of NJ Audubon [(908) 766-2661] is a regular weekly report on birding in New Jersey. The tape is changed regularly on Wednesdays, more often when necessary. [Compiled by R.
