Ok maybe today was a little more than “just” another Spring day in NJ, with the “available” Male Painted Bunting, but I am telling you…Jersey is for pLovers! (and all other sorts of birds!)
I wanted to head down to Belleplain today to see one of my favorite warblers, the Yellow-throated Warbler. Sunset bridge didn’t disappoint with at least 3 adults all singing. There were also 2 Louisiana Waterthrushes, 10 or so Pine Warblers and 2 Blue-gray Gnatcatchers.
Sam Galick posted a note on JerseyBirds that a Male Painted Bunting was being seen in Absecon, so I shot up to see if I could nab my first male in New Jersey. The home owner Don was very welcoming and within 5 minutes there he was. Truly stunning bird! Big thanks to Don for letting New Jersey birders share in such a colorful April present!
Another good day of NJ Birding! Keep um coming!
