Subject: Rarities update, 12/28/16
From: Samuel Galick <sam.galick AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Wed, 28 Dec 2016 10:03:07 -0500
The Rock Wren is still present around the intersection of Rutgers Blvd and
Mento Way in Franklin Township this morning.

The two Barnacle Geese are still frequenting a farm field off just west of
Old Trenton Road and Pinceton Hightstown Road as of this morning.

The Brewer's Blackbird is still present in Cape May. It was seen this
morning at Beach Plum Farm off of Steven's Street.

The Pink-footed Goose was last seen in the fading light of the afternoon
yesterday along South Holmdel Road, in Holmdel.

Please reference previous messages about access to some of these birds on
the NJBirds listserv here:

It's with a word of caution to please stay on the roadside and park cars away 
from the construction intersection. There is a long portion of Rutgers road 
that has ample room to park. Respect private property, and active construction 
sites for your safety. Doing this will ensure continued viewing of this great 
bird. 


Good birding,

Subject: Rock Wren, Somerset County
From: Samuel Galick <sam.galick AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Mon, 26 Dec 2016 13:09:38 -0500
The following is from Cliff Miller:

Possible ROCK WREN, seen 12/25/16, Somerset Co., NJ

At 3:45 p.m. 12/25/16, I observed what I believe may be a ROCK WREN, at 
40.53345 N 74.56850 W (northeast corner of Rutgers Blvd. and Mento Way in 
Somerset, NJ). I was about 25 feet away when I first noticed the bird pecking 
sandy gravel next to a curb at a home construction site on this corner. 
(Observations by naked eye and binoculars.) The bird then perched on the curb 
and proceeded to bounce and dip energetically, like a winter wren but with much 
deeper movements, looking from side to side. My initial impression was of a 
wren, but much larger and paler; it was also in the wrong habitat (no trees or 
brush within 100 feet -- the ground was almost completely recently-disturbed 
rocky dirt with a few small bunches of scraggly weeds. 

The bird's size was between a Carolina Wren and a Hermit Thrush. It had a pale, 
sandy back with fine white spotting interspersed among slightly larger dots 
that appeared to have both a black and a white side to them. Impression of 
slight rusty red in tertials or near wing bend. Longish, narrow tail, long 
legs. Head was same pale sandy color as back; a weak white supercilium with a 
poorly-defined border. Beak like C. Wren. Chest was white with faint, fine 
streaking; bolder, somewhat reddish-brown streaking formed a necklace like a 
Canada Warbler's. The flanks had a pale red wash, reminiscent of Say's Phoebe. 


The bird flushed when I attempted to leave my vehicle, and hid in the 
wheel-well of a nearby parked car. On gentle pishing, the bird came back out, 
gave a very squeaky, emphatic "p-chee!" call, twice, before flying into a patch 
of weeds. Was unable to relocate for almost an hour, but found again about 10 
minutes after sunset -- first by voice, giving the same call as before (very 
similar to this xeno-canto sample). The bird was then perching on concrete 
sewer pipes and other structures placed on the same exposed rocky ground about 
40 feet from where I'd first seen it. It quickly flew to the ground and 
apparently hid beneath or inside one of the structures -- was not seen or heard 
after that. 




It was seen again this morning.



Good birding!



Sam

While out walking Toby at noon I casually scanned a visiting flock of
Canada Geese.  There were two Barnacle Geese among the other birds.  The
location is the grass field next to the Windsor Chapel on 401 Village Road
East.  There is ample parking.  Be careful not to scare the flock.

Subject: Pink-footed Goose, Wall Township NJ
From: L Larson <llarson2 AT MAC.COM>
Date: Mon, 5 Dec 2016 14:07:34 -0500
A Pink-footed Goose, apparently an immature bird, was located today on playing 
fields of the Wall Intermediate School in Wall Township by Paul Lehman, in the 
state for a visit. Also there, about 200 Canada Geese and one Cackling Goose. 
However, security guards from the school made it clear that visitors were not 
welcome while school was in session. The school is on the corner of Allaire Rd 
(Rt 524) and Bailey’s Corner Rd. This same area of Wall Township, Monmouth 
Co., had a Pink-footed Goose a few years ago; and there are open fields that 
can be checked, without any need to access the school grounds. 


Nearby, Paul also observed a young Black Brant at the National Guard/State 
Police fields on the north shore route, between Wreck Pond and Mansquan Inlet, 
with a large mixed flock of Brant and Canada Geese. 


At the Trenton Sewer Authority Plant on Lamberton Rd., there were seven Tree 
swallows last week and six Rough-winged swallows this morning. This was the 
home last winter of several lingering warblers, but few land birds seem to be 
present in the area this year.

> Reply-To: Greg Prelich

> This afternoon Chris Sturm and I went canoeing/birding in the Island Beach 
Sedge Islands. In one of the many channels off of the main sand flat we spotted 
a wading bird that looked unusual. It was much smaller than a Great Blue Heron, 
its overall dull gray appearance stood out, with black legs and an all-black 
bill, and it hunted occasionally with its wings held upward. I was able to get 
multiple photos, and after examining them and consulting the field guides, it 
appears to be an immature Reddish Egret. I have only seen adult Reddish Egrets, 
and would love to get opinions of those experienced with seeing them in this 
plumage. The bird flew off toward the north, but it could easily have landed 
anywhere within the Sedge Islands area. The location where we found it was not 
accessible at all without a canoe or kayak.

From: Samuel Galick <sam.galick AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Fri, 15 Jul 2016 14:10:53 -0400
On my lunch break I found a sub-adult White Ibis preening with a flock of 
Glossy Ibis in the first quarter mile of Wildlife Drive next to goose marker 4. 
About a 100 yards east of the Ibis were three American Avocets sleeping and 
preening. I left and Jesse Amesbury watched the White Ibis leave with two 
Glossy Ibis heading south and out of sight. Later on along the dogleg I came 
upon three American Avocets sleeping and preening once again. Both groups were 
brightly colored males, but I'm unsure if they are the same birds due to their 
sedentary behavior during both observations. 


Tom Johnson had four American Avocets fly by the TNC Meadows on Cape Island 
early this morning. Lastly, as I was leaving Forsythe NWR there was an adult 
Pied-billed Grebe floating next to the bridge as you exit. 


Good birding,

For the fifth day now, the Brown Booby at Merrill Creek Reservoir

traffic jams this morning. The parking lot that hosts the hawkwatch in the

After many years of anticipation by the state's birders, Mississippi Kites
have finally been confirmed nesting in New Jersey.  More details can be
found at the New Jersey Bird Records Committee web site, www.njbrc.com.
Under "Recent Posts," click on "Mississippi Kites Nesting in New Jersey." 

 

Many birders have visited Waretown during the summers of 2015 and 2016
looking for these birds, which can often be seen flying around the wooded
area west of Elizabeth Avenue. The actual nest is on private property and
birders are discouraged from trying to locate the nest and/or intrude on the
privacy of the homeowners in the neighborhood. The last thing we want is for
the homeowner to get so upset as to harass the nesting birds or have the
nest removed.

At 12:50 PM I photographed a Ruff along the north dike just past the dogleg on 
Wildlife Drive, Forsythe NWR. The Ruff took a brief flight with a Lesser 
Yellowlegs and Least Sandpipers. There has also been a female Red-necked 
Phalarope a couple hundred yards beyond the Ruff location. 


Ruff location: 39.469206, -74.420958

Re: my recent post about a Bar-tailed Godwit. Jim actually said he "thought"
the bird is a Bar-tailed Godwit. In looking back at the photos now, I think
it is an Hudsonia Godwit.

Jersey Birders,

 

Jim Danzenbaker has brought to our attention that the Long-billed Dowitcher
reported from Forsythe NWR yesterday, July 5, is actually a Bar-tailed
Godwit in breeding plumage. This might well be the bird that has been seen
there in spring during four of the past six years (but not this spring).
Photos are on eBird at http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S30565109

Subject: (12) Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks, Cape May County
From: Samuel Galick <sam.galick AT GMAIL.COM>
Date: Wed, 29 Jun 2016 21:32:38 -0400
An unprecedented amount of 12 Black-bellied Whistling-Ducks were discovered at 
Shunpike Pond this evening by Brian Moscatello. Some observers witnessed 
compulation among the birds which at this point raises even more questions! As 
far as I know they remained around the pond for the rest of the evening. 


Shunpike Pond is in West Cape May on Cape Island. I'd gather that this would 
pique the minds of many, and parking is a bit troublesome when multiple 
vehicles are involved. Please use your best judgement and safety when it comes 
to parking on the side of the road there. Being courteous to property owners on 
and adjacent to the property should be heavily considered for continued 
enjoyment for all. 


38.949455,-74.935155


This doubles the previous high count in the state where previously six birds 
were recorded at Forsythe NWR in 2011 in late Jul/early August. 


Good bidding,

Sam

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,

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.
