January 19 - Northern Lapwings in NJ

Finally I got a chance to get down and see the Northern Lapwings that are being seen in Ocean County's town of New Egypt.  Amazingly these 3 birds have stayed here for quite a bit now. Moreover their high number of 3 birds unusual, and so too is their long stay, as often these birds are "one-day wonders".  Many times these birds are only found for a few hours!.

Update:  As of February 23 these birds are still being seen !

After seeing these birds, my friend's car broke down but we were able to get a rental & continue on.  We later stopped at the Lyons VA Hospital in Somerset County where we had fine views of the Greater-White Fronted Goose that has been reported here.
