Losen Slote: Warbler Capital!!

NJMC Naturalist Mike Newhouse was at Losen Slote Creek Park today and reports that it was the best songbird day he's ever had in the Meadwowlands.

Here's a sample: Ovenbird, Worm-eating Warbler, Northern Waterthrush,
Black-and-white Warbler, Common IMG_9336Yellowthroat (photograph at right
taken at Losen Slote earlier this month), American Redstart, Cape May Warbler, Northern Parula, Magnolia Warbler, Blackburnian Warbler, Yellow Warbler, Blackpoll Warbler, Black-throated Blue Warbler, Yellow-rumped Warbler, Black-throated Green Warbler  and Canada Warbler.  (Thanks, Mike!)

Full list, with numbers, follows — including a rare birdie from the walk earlier this month. (Not sure if Mike saw this one, but he doesn't miss much.)
