Voice of New Jersey Audubon - 8/21/1991
This is the Voice of New Jersey Audubon for Wednesday, August 21, 1991 at 1 PM, with reports of SANDWICH TERN, CORY'S and GREATER SHEARWATER, PARASITIC JAEGER, BROWN PELICAN, and local reports. A trip on the Miss Barnegat Light on Monday, Aug. 20, [sic] about 15 miles out, produced a SANDWICH TERN, CORY'S and GREATER SHEARWATER, 1 PARASITIC JAEGER, and 100 BROWN PELICANS. [Monday Aug. 19 was the day Hurricane Bob went through; I would guess the boat trip was on Tuesday Aug. 20. --LL] BROWN PELICANS have also been reported from Holgate and from Cape May. At the Middlesex Reservoir in Clark, a TRICOLORED HERON was present on Raritan Rd. Aug. 21. On the Clarksville Sod Farm [in Columbus, NJ] Aug. 19 there were 13 UPLAND SANDPIPERS, 4 PECTORAL SANDPIPERS, and 2 SOLITARY SANDPIPERS. Reported migrating this week were NIGHTHAWK, HUMMINGBIRD, BOBOLINK, and some warblers. 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. Kane, NJ Audubon; transcribed for National Birding Hotline Cooperative by L.
