This past year was a sparse one for new life birds, which get harder to find as a life list gets longer. Below are the four new birds I saw in 2012.
|352||Monk Parakeet||Carteret -- Washington Ave||March 21, 2012|
|353||Sandwich Tern||Raritan Bay Waterfront Park||July 14, 2012|
|354||Elegant Tern||Sandy Hook--tip area||September 8, 2012|
|355||Crested Caracara||Princeton Junction--Grover Farm||September 11, 2012|
Rather than recapitulate the sightings here, I will just link to the blog posts I wrote about them as they happened.
