This is the Voice of New Jersey Audubon for Wednesday, July 8, 1992 at 1 pm with reports of ANHINGA, WILD TURKEY, UPLAND SANDPIPER, and local reports of interest. The ANHINGA seen last week over Brielle was not reported again; but a male was reported on July 3 over Kearney, near exit 15W of the NJ Turnpike. WILD TURKEYS were reported this week at Yard's Creek, at the upper parking area; no Ravens were reported there. Other birds seen at Yard's Creek included CLIFF SWALLOW and WORM-EATING WARBLER. WILD TURKEYS were also reported this week on Saw Mill Rd. and Ridge Rd. in Stokes State Forest, also in Great Swamp near the long observation blind boardwalk. UPLAND SANDPIPERS were reported this week at Oberly Rd. in Alpha, Warren Cty., and also in Linvale, off Rt. 31, Hunterdon Cty. GRASSHOPPER SPARROW and BOBOLINK are also at both sites. At Manasquan Reservoir in Monmouth Cty., DOUBLE-CRESTED CORMORANTS were observed nesting this week, southeast of the causeway on Georgia Tavern Rd., in dead trees. This represents the third nesting locale in the state. A BALD EAGLE continues on and off at Manasquan Reservoir. KENTUCKY WARBLER and N. PARULA were in Jockey Hollow this week; N. PARULA was also found along Rt. 615 near Flatbrookville. The Voice of NJ Audubon [(908) 766-2661] is a regular weekly report on birding in New Jersey.
