DVOC Field Trip Report

GLOUCESTER COUNTY “RUN”, NJ

Our annual Glassboro Woods trip for Kentucky Warbler and other hard to see species was a bit slow this year - probably due to the late arrivals of many of the breeders - some weren't even on territory yet!
We did hear 3 Kentucky Warblers - and tried hard to see one. It was within
10 ft. of us, but wouldn't show itself! We heard most of the breeders - just in low numbers. We did have excellent looks at Worm-eating Warbler, a Scarlet Tanager pair, Blue-winged Warbler, Ovenbird, many Black and Whites, among others. We leisurely walked Nowhere Rd. and Carpenter Rd. taking time to learn chip notes in addition to the various songs. I will be running this trip a week later starting next year. I am hoping more species will be in and on territory. I am including the link to the ebird checklist for the trip.
