|Neotropic Cormorant, Clinton, NJ, 11 June 2014|
After not seeing any reports of the Neotropic Cormorant I found in Clinton back in April, I stopped by the Red Mill pond downtown and quickly found the bird sitting on branches in the middle of the pond. This will be the 1st New Jersey record pending acceptance by the NJBRC. When I first found the bird, I guessed it would stay the summer (where else would it go?), so we'll see how long it hangs out. It's got a nice river to fish in, and unless it gets lonely and wants to go off and look for a mate, I don't know why it won't just hang out here along the river.
