Snowy Owl in Jersey City Last Week

   Mike Britt reports: "I know how ridiculous this sounds but there was a Snowy Owl on the beach at Caven Point on Sunday, Aug. 20 )… I wonder if the wintering bird simply summered?
  "I know that they have lingered at Logan Airport in Boston until July in the past…but an August bird in Jersey…"
  A photo of the bird is in wildnewjersey.tv — link is here .

Bird Reports: September

A few updates from over the weekend:

 090509: Ray Duffy reports: I did a walk around sunset tonight at the Mill Creek Point Boardwalk.  I had a Sora at about 5 yards running around and feeding just past the 2nd debris gate for about 10 minutes.  I also had a Caspian Tern. Hopefully, a good sign for Birding Fest.
