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
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.
