Hi everyone, New Jersey has had a lot of other interesting sightings lately. A possible Red-necked Stint sighting at the Cape May Meadows this week was followed up by a photo-documented individual at Brigantine ( Edward B Forsythe NWR) near Atlantic City on the 23rd. It has not been seen again, but it is nice reminder that late July is absolutely not too early for red-letter shorebirds.
There has been a continuing Roseate Spoonbill at Brig for some time now - the Liberty Loop bird in Sussex County is a second individual. Additionally, a pair of Mississippi Kites is once again nesting in Waretown, and pelicans are solidifying their place as a south NJ staple, with many dozen around Barnegat Light alone. Of course I don’t mean for anyone to actually go to NJ, but rather find these things up here.
