Fork-tailed Flycatcher showing well. It's in the field by the grassy swale 
where the Northern Shrike was. Take right turn just before the Assunpink Lake

The Cape May text system Keekeekerr carried this report at 10:15 today, posted 
by David LaPuma: 


“Good description of a GYRFALCON from Leigh McBride: ‘We saw a Gyrfalcon at 
Cox Hall about 20 minutes ago, East side of big pond, flew to West side. Mack 
and I both got great looks at it perched in a tree. Sighting was at 9:15 AM’.

It has been brought to my attention through sources that this report has
considerable doubt from various factors. I think it's best to consider this
an unfortunate wild Smew chase. Thought provoking with the actual prospect,
I both appreciate and apologize any time spent looking for this bird.

In the unlikelihood that this bird will be actually found, I will post
information here again.

Good birding and keep dreaming,

Sam

Harris's Sparrow is present today at 51 Old Washington Crossing Rd., east of 
Titusville, Mercer Co, NJ. 

This is a residential neighborhood; please be considerate of the people who 
live there when parking and observing.

hour before Ernie Hahn drove up and told me and another birder that our target 
was actually up the block at #51. After a few minutes of searching up there we 
saw the bird--it seemed skittish but did come out for good looks. After a while 
it flew across the street and walked along in front of the house there. There's 
always a conundrum, for me, as to whether you should "stake out" the bird or 
walk around looking for it. In this case, I guess the answer is walk around a 
little, the bird tends to travel. But be considerate of the neighbors.

Subject: Varied Thrush update – Villas, Cape May Co.
From: Tom Reed <coturnicops AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Thu, 24 Dec 2015 15:37:13 -0500
All,

The Varied Thrush continues at Cox Hall Creek WMA, showing nicely this
afternoon from 12:45-12:55. CHCWMA is located at the end of Shawmont Ave
and is accessed from Bayshore Rd (Route 603), just south of the library and
municipal complex in Villas. Given the many trails at this site, providing
directions to specific birds is always a bit of a challenge. I created the
following map that plots reports from this week (as well as the November
sighting of presumably the same bird):

https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=zBuxofSUcvjY.kG_NfubVUvO4&usp=sharing

Today's sighting occurred at the same spot where the bird was first found
on Monday, along a small footpath in the center of the property. Accessed
from the central paved path, the footpath's north end is denoted with a
wooden post. The Varied Thrush was about 0.2 miles south from here. The
spot is also favored by a Red-headed Woodpecker. Coordinates are 39.00255,
-74.94355.

When I encountered the bird today, it was feeding on the ground near
White-throated Sparrows and Eastern Towhees. It eventually flew to the
treetops and kinda-sorta joined a small flock of Blue Jays. It followed
them toward the east, but didn't appear to go far. It's worth noting that
the Varied Thrush was also associating with Blue Jays on Monday.

More updates when available.


happy holidays

NJBIRDS,

A dull-green plumaged Painted Bunting was photographed today at Hatfield Swamp, 
West Caldwell. The excellent photos show traces of his adult colors starting to 
peek through the green. 


Here's the report from Jerseybirds list:

>  
> 
> I stumbled upon this beauty today. Mike Britt made the ace photo ID via text 
and Steve Byland 2nded the ID. 

> 
> Access Hatfield Swamp via Kirkpatrick Lane in West Caldwell. I am told you 
may get ticketed for parking directly in front of the PSEG powerline cut (where 
the bird is). Try a nearby parking lot instead maybe. 

> 
> Bird was not far from parking area. Navigate main dirt trail (powerline cut), 
cross one small wet covert and once you pass the tent/shelter in the woods off 
to the right begin looking for the bird. It was associating with sparrows 
(Song, White-throat, Fox) and actively feeding in and among the phrags lining 
both sides of the dirt trail.

Subject: New Jersey Bird Records Committee Update
From: Bill Boyle <njsawwhet AT COMCAST.NET>
Date: Tue, 24 Nov 2015 18:23:06 -0500
New Jersey Birders,

 

The New Jersey Bird Records Committee has a new web site - www.njbrc.com,
although the old url, www.njbrc.net will work, as well.

 

I have posted the 2015 Annual Report of the NJBRC, covering the year 2014,
on the site. From the Welcome page, click on Lists and Annual Reports and
scroll down to the Annual Reports.

 

I have also posted a summary of the results of the Fall 2015 meeting of the
Committee, at which reports from the first half of 2015 were reviewed. On
the Lists and Annual Reports page, scroll down to Results of Fall 2015
Meeting.

 

The NJBRC has officially joined most other coastal states in adopting the
"Nearest Point of Land" method for determining offshore boundaries. From the
Welcome page, click on Resources and scroll down to Pelagic Boundaries to
learn about the details.

 

As part of an effort to keep the Committee web site more current, we have
also added a blog. For the first post, covering the recent invasion of
Franklin's Gulls in New Jersey, click on the Blog or on the Recent Posts.
For future posts, you have the opportunity to subscribe to be notified.

 

Finally, there is a new email address for reports submitted to the
Committee: njbrcreport AT gmail.com

 

The NJBRC looks forward to receiving comments and suggestions from New
Jersey birders on how the Committee can work to keep this web site more
useful and current. The new web site is still a work-in-progress, so ideas
are appreciated.

 

Bill Boyle, Secretary

New Jersey Bird Records Committee

---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Jacob Socolar 
Date: Sun, Oct 18, 2015 at 1:28 PM
Subject: [JERSEYBI] Say's Phoebe, Somerset County
To: JERSEYBI AT lists.princeton.edu


Dear all,
This morning at about 9:00 I observed a Say's Phoebe at the Negri Nepote
Grasslands in Somerset County.
I left and returned with my camera at about 9:30, but could NOT relocate
the bird.

While the ID is straightforward (details below), I was puzzled by one
plumage feature (see "Upperparts", below), and the record deserves special
scrutiny as there are very few non-coastal NJ records.  I would appreciate
comments.

*Details:*
Found by the dry pond a few hundred yards from the Skillman's Rd parking
lot at ~9:00 AM October 18 2015.  Perched on a sign and observed for a few
minutes.  Still on the sign when I left to try to grab my camera.
Excellent light with sun behind me.

*General appearance:*
Flycatcher shape with upright posture and medium bill. Initially viewed
dorsally; struck me as a Phoebe (tail pumping), but back was paler than
typical Eastern, contrasting with wings and especially with long and very
dark tail. Also some dark in the head/face area, but I found myself
uncertain afterwards (I did not have a notebook with me during the
observation) whether this was restricted to the face, or extended to the
forehead and cap.  Body seemed too long for Eastern, and slender but
sturdily built.

*Underparts:*
Distinct salmon wash from lower breast through undertail coverts.  Not as
bright as some Say's Phoebe but within the range of variation.  Wash
transitioned to smudgy gray breast similar in color to mantle or perhaps a
bit paler.  Transition was not high-contrast, with the salmon tones palest
on the lower breast (compared to belly and vent); nevertheless, the grayer
tones of the breast came in fairly abruptly (but without high contrast).
Salmon tones reached slightly higher in the center of the breast/belly than
along the flanks.  Because the bird was perched on a sign, the tail was not
seen well from below.

*Upperparts:*
Fairly pale gray mantle extending up to nape, and around the sides of the
neck, perhaps a bit darker on the cap.  Tail very dark and contrasting with
back color.  Wings also dark, but pale edging to coverts created the
impression of 2 wing bars.  *THIS EDGING appeared orangey-buff, a bit less
bright and less pink (more buff) than underparts*  This is consistent with
a juvenile bird, but prebasic molt should be complete.  I am unable to
ascertain (without Pyle in front of me) how likely a young bird is to
retain juvenile wing coverts in Basic 1.  I did not notice a molt limit,
but I am not sure that I would have noticed this.

Additional notes: An Eastern Phoebe was repeatedly observed nearby (closer
the parking lot).  Seemed dumpier, smaller, darker above, and dull
yellowish rather than salmon underneath.

Other decent nearby birds included Lincoln's Sparrow and White-crowned
Sparrow.

Cheers
Jacob Socolar

Harvey Tomlinson just found a juvenile Curlew Sandpiper along the wildlife 
drive at Forsythe NWR. As of five minutes ago it was still there in the company 
of two Buff-breasted Sandpipers, Baird's Sandpiper, and an American Golden- 
Plover. The shorebirds do get up and fly around being flushed by raptors. 


Good birding,

Many people have experienced a problem with the Jerseybirds, Delaware birds, 
and/or NJBIRDS Listservs. This message will not reach you if you are one of the 
affected members. However, we hope enough people are still getting list 
messages so they can tell their friends, forward this message, etc., and we can 
get the word out. We finally have learned what's going on. 



Many e-mail providers started blocking e-mail _from_ Princeton a few days back, 
when some incoming first-year students got infected by a "phishing" e-mail. 
These new student e-mail accounts were compromised and sent out a bunch of spam 
through our domain. Some of the e-mail providers (such as Gmail, AOL, Verizon, 
etc.) on Sept. 2 put a hold on all princeton.edu e-mail, not just that of the 
affected students. I do not have a full list of the affected e-mail services. 


Although the University e-mail administrators have stopped the infected 
students' spam, these blocks have not yet been lifted. 


However, the blocks do not affect _posting_ to the list, as far as I know; so 
if you have something to report please post a message for the sake of those who 
are not blocked. 


Princeton's e-mail administrators work hard to prevent this sort of thing, and 
this is the first time in years this has happened despite the deluge of spam. 
They are also working hard to get the e-mail providers to remove the blocks. 
You can possibly make a difference if you contact your e-mail service provider 
(ISP) and tell them that your e-mail from Princeton is not arriving. 


Unfortunately ABA is also a victim of this block and their feed 
(birding.aba.org) isn't updating, so if your e-mail is among the blocked 
services, the only place you can read new list messages right now is at these 
links:

https://lists.princeton.edu/cgi-bin/wa?A0=de-birds

It should not require a password to read the archive (unless you need to see 
e-mail addresses of other members which are protected in this way). If I'm 
wrong about this please let me know at jerseybi-request AT princeton.edu . 

 
The listowners are very sorry for the inconvenience, but there's nothing we can 
do. Please keep checking in at the archives, and please notify your e-mail 
service provider that your e-mail is not reaching you. And please get out and 
enjoy the birds this weekend, and have a good Labor Day.

To: JERSEYBI AT lists.princeton.edu


Hi all,

An evening walk at Stone Harbor Point was highlighted by a Wilson's Plover
that flew past just before sunset, trailing a handful of Semipalmated
Plovers and Sanderling. This scattered group had been feeding along the
water's edge at the very north end of the Point (low tide was at 7:15pm),
and was apparently flushed by people walking on the beach. The Wilson's
continued south along the beachfront as far as I could see, and I'm unsure
if it eventually landed somewhere on the Point, elsewhere in Hereford
Inlet, or ?

Wilson's Plover has a nasty habit of being a one-day wonder, but here's
hoping this one has different plans!



good birding,
tr

NJBIRDS,
 
Sandra Keller reports second-hand that two Black-bellied Whistling Ducks have 
been coming to feed offered by a homeowner in Alloway, Salem Co., NJ. The 
homeowner reported to Sandra that the waterfowl come at dawn and dusk to corn 
spread in the driveway at 69 East Canal Street in Alloway. Birders are advised 
to park on Main Street and walk to the home. We don't usually alert a 
second-hand report, but this is publicized in the hope of gathering more 
details. There are only 11 previous records, all since 2000 and mostly during 
summer. 


Please be courteous. There is no public access except from the road. Do not go 
on any private property without permission.

Jersey Birders,

 

I have posted a summary of the results of the Spring 2015 meeting of the New
Jersey Bird Records Committee on the committee's web site. This review
focused primarily on reports from the second half of 2014, although some
earlier reports were reviewed. Two new species were added to the NJ State
List at this meeting, bringing the total to 476. To see the document, go to
www.njbrc.net and scroll down to "Summary of Results, second half 2014."
Click on the link to read or download the pdf file. An Annual Report
covering the year 2014 will be published later this year.

 

I have also posted updated version of the New Jersey State List, the NJBRC
Review List, and the Accepted Records List, which lists all occurrences of
all reviewable species, as published in NJBRC Annual Reports and other
sources. Includes bibliographic references, where available. These can be
accessed at www.njbrc.net. Future updates will include references to some
older Annual Reports that are not yet available online. 

 

Bill Boyle, Secretary

New Jersey Bird Records Committee
