First, to Louis, if you can't capture the gannet please give me (far) more specific location information ASAP and I'll see if I can get over there and drive it up to the RT. But would have to be extremely soon.
Just had a pair of glossy ibis at Waterworks Pond in Sayreville, on the bank of the main body of water on the RR tracks side, a few hundred feet from the paved road.
I've seen the species there before, but long ago.
And since we're here...
On Friday at Sandy Hook I had to pull my car on to the shoulder very suddenly and run to assist a mother woodcock and three chicks that were sitting in the road. The first car behind me actually drove over the young ones but I made the other four stop. All the birds were fine and two made it to the side of the road with just my prodding as I picked up and moved the third, and all ran and reunited with the mother (and disappeared before I could retrieve my camera...). Chicks were unbelievably cute.
