I decided to try the Glenhurst meadows this morning. There had been reports of Vesper Sparrow there which have thus far eluded me. After a horrible few days of snow and cold (ok well rain and cold might be more accurate) it was nice to get out into a warm morning and see what was around. I bumped into a couple of Princeton area birders (Mary Margaret and Charles – hope I spelled those right) who were on an Orange-crowned Warbler. I hadn’t been able to photograph this guy in NJ so I was happy to be able to share the bird. A walk through the “wet” paths of the park turned up many Song, Swamp, Savannah and White-throated sparrows. I also saw a few Field and two juvenile White-crowned Sparrows. Others reported Vesper (of course I missed it) and even a first of fall Fox sparrow. There were also Rusty Blackbirds around as well as Yellow-rumped Warbler and Palm Warblers. A beautiful day for birding!
