A fellow birder found a Roseate Spoonbill at Heislerville WMA Cumberland County, NJ this morning. It was seen by many for several hours, at the far edge of the rookery island, on north impoundment. This is the main body of water on your right, as you drive down the road.

Be mindful to park in the lot before the open straightaway, or beyond the straightaway. Local police enforce no parking zone on the straightaway - don't stop in the middle, even if no one around!

The bird seems to move around, but was seen through sunset, and hopefully stays through tomorrow for others to enjoy. A treat to see a big pink bird with outrageous spoon-shaped bill!

Regards, Debbie Beer

The Roseate Spoonbill is still present at Heislerville WMA. Currently feeding in the channel just south of both impounds.

Sabine's Gull, Liberty, NJ, (Warren Cty.)


The following is forwarded from Jerseybirds and GroupMe. The latter gives the location https://goo.gl/maps/E738HypGFN... (Mountain Lake, Liberty, NJ 07823) -- but the bird was no longer at Mountain Lake as of 11 AM. Other large reservoirs (Spruce Run, Merrill Creek) and the Delaware R. are within range.

If further information is available please post to Jerseybirds list.

Thanks,
Laurie Larson, Princeton
