Voice of New Jersey Audubon - 9/27/1994
This is the voice of NJ Audubon for Tuesday, Sept. 27, 1994 at 4:30 PM with reports of AMERICAN AVOCET, MARBLED GODWIT, HUDSONIAN GODWIT, DICKCISSEL, WILSON'S PHALAROPE, and seasonal reports. The rainstorm Sept. 23 dumped five AVOCETS, a MARBLED GODWIT, a HUDSONIAN GODWIT and lots of other shorebirds at Brigantine NWR on Friday; none of them were seen Saturday. The same weather may have been responsible for MARBLED GODWITS at Spermaceti Cove, Sandy Hook, Sept. 24; an another at Wreck Pond in Sea Girt Sept. 26. Also, an AVOCET was briefly in the Hackensack Meadowlands Environmental Center Pool on Sept. 24. Also at the HMEC pool on Sept. 26 was a WILSON'S PHALAROPE among other common shorebirds. Sandy Hook Sept. 24 also had COMMON BARN OWL on the south Dune Trail; at least 12 Warbler species, including WILSON'S WARBLER, YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT, CONNECTICUT WARBLER; also LINCOLN'S SPARROW. On Sept. 25, a DICKCISSEL was at Thompson Park on Rt. 520 in Lincroft, Monmouth Co. Reported in numbers this week were SAVANNAH SPARROW, PALM WARBLER, CHIMNEY SWIFT, with RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH in smaller numbers.
