DVOC Field Trip Report

Riverwinds and National Park Dredge Spoils
April 20, 2008
Two dozen members of the DVOC and guests from Gloucester
County Nature Club met on an outstanding, weather-wise, Spring morning.
Unfortunately, the birding wasn't quite as cooperative as the weather.
With a lack of any significant weather front during the past week, spring
migrants were scarce. We started the day at the Riverwinds scenic trail,
where we tallied Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Blue-headed Vireo, Common Yellowthroat,
Yellow-rumped Warbler, Eastern Phoebe & Brown Thrasher. Notably, Northern
Bobwhite, a breeder, wasn't heard until late in the morning as we were
driving out of the complex, and then only briefly.
