Voice of New Jersey Audubon - 8/1/1990
This is the Voice of New Jersey Audubon for Wednesday August 1, 1990 at 1:00 pm with reports of BROWN PELICAN, seasonal shorebirds, and a whale-watch trip announcement following the bird reports. BROWN PELICANS were reported this week from Stone Harbor Point and Holgate; they have also been seen at Barnegat Light on low tide. At Brigantine National Wildlife Refuge this week CASPIAN and GULL-BILLED TERNS were seen, along with usual seasonal shorebirds, but in very small numbers (except for SEMIPALMATED SANDPIPER.) The previously reported WHITE-FACED IBIS has not been seen since July 25. At the Hackensack Meadowlands Environmental Center in Lyndhurst July 30 there were 2 STILT SANDPIPERS, one adult YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON, 9 SKIMMERS, and about 35 each of LEAST TERNS and FORSTER'S TERNS. The WHITE PELICAN previously seen there has not been reported since July 26. The adult BALD EAGLE which has previously been reported between Chester and Mendham was seen twice this week; once over Scherman-Hoffman Sanctuary in Bernardsville, once in Great Swamp NWR. A whale watch trip runs during summer on Mondays, on the Miss Barnegat Light out of Barnegat Light. The trip leaves 8:30 am, it returns at 4:00 pm, and goes out 31 miles. The price $35 per person. For information and reservation call the Miss Barnegat Light, (609) 494-2094. The Voice of NJ Audubon [(908) 766-2661] is a regular weekly report on birding in New Jersey.
