weekly photo walks this Saturday, 8-10 a.m.]
Tom Reed and Tom Johnson have been birding up a storm [while the rest of us are stuck at work. . .]. Check http://twitter.com/cmbobirds for their reports of Dovekie, Rough-legged hawk, Golden Eagle. . .oi. I mean, nice work, guys. TJ then went on to Seven President's Park up in Monmouth County, on a jerseybirds report of Red Crossbills, and found that species and a White-winged Crossbill, too! TR had an Eastern Phoebe at Higbee on Tuesday, and 2 Common Redpolls and 2 Northern Bobwhites at TNC's Cape Island Preserve the same day.
On Monday Mike Hannisian and Nancy Watson had a drake Harlequin and 30 Purple Sandpipers at the Stone Harbor Point jetty, and a Short-eared Owl over the dunes there.
