Voice of New Jersey Audubon - 7/3/1990
This is the Voice of New Jersey Audubon for Tuesday, July 3, 1990, at 4:40 PM with reports of BROWN PELICAN, MISSISSIPPI KITE, SHEARWATERS, RUFF, DICKCISSEL, RED-THROATED LOON, and seasonal and local reports of interest. BROWN PELICANS in the Cape May area this week numbered somewhere between twenty and forty. Four BROWN PELICANS were also seen at Normandy Beach on June 28. A MISSISSIPPI KITE was over Cape May Point at the State Park on June 29 and a RUFF was in the South Cape May Meadows also on June 29. On June 28 and 29 both SOOTY SHEARWATER and GREATER SHEARWATER were seen a few miles offshore from Cape May. At Colliers Mills a singing male DICKCISSEL was found June 29 one-half mile in from the entrance. The RED-THROATED LOON continues on Merrill Creek Reservoir, a very unusual summer occurrence in our area. At Black River on June 25 were KENTUCKY WARBLER, HOODED WARBLER, WORM-EATING, and PINE WARBLERS and also SOLITARY VIREO, GOLDEN-CROWNED KINGLET, and RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH. CROSSBILLS were NOT reported from Rt. 515 this week; a MAGNOLIA WARBLER was found along Rt. 515 on Sunday July 1.
