Voice of New Jersey Audubon - 8/6/1997
This is the voice of NJ Audubon for Wed., August 6 with reports of LITTLE GULL, CASPIAN TERN, BROWN PELICAN, and seasonal and local reports of interest.

LITTLE GULLS continue at Laurence Harbor this week. The birds can also be seen at nearby South Amboy. Reach both locations from Route 35 North.

On August 2, Aug. 3, and Aug. 4, BROWN PELICANS were seen at Harvey Cedars. A CASPIAN TERN was also seen there on Sunday, Aug. 3. CASPIAN TERN was at Brig on Aug. 2, along with GULL-BILLED TERN and a few WHIMBREL. Not much else was reported from Brig, possibly due to the closings [and the lack of water -tr.] Call the refuge at 609-652-1665 to check on scheduled closings for Aug. 9-10 and Sept. 13-14 and plan your trips accordingly.

Three WHIMBRELS were at Tuckerton on the 31st, as well as LITTLE BLUE HERON and BLACK-CROWNED NIGHT HERONS. Two SURF SCOTERS were at Island Beach Aug. 3. Scherman-Hoffman had a YELLOW-BELLIED FLYCATCHER Aug. 2, and a COOPER'S HAWK Aug. 6. BLUE-WINGED WARBLER and SAVANNAH SPARROW are at the Martinsville reservoir on Newman's Lane in Somerset.
