A state by state listing of waterfowl, including New Jersey ... eBird
What you are looking for is the section heading ... Most Checklists Submitted for Current Month by State.
When you click on a State, there will be a table of waterfowl species ... heavy green bars indicate high concentrations
Then when you click on the species, there will be red spots and yellow spots on the map for the species.  The yellow spots are current sightings.

One of the most asked questions is ... 'Where to Hunt'.  So, instead of driving around the State looking for the birds, why not just bring up eBird and see where the 'birders' have have sighted the species .... from the convenience of your home!  ;D  Then jump in your vehicle with a pair of binoculars and drive to the location noted where the high concentration of birds are - glass around for a point and your good to go!

One has to remember - there are hundreds of birders out there daily doing the sightings and then recording the species on eBird.  They are doing the scouting for you!  ;D

How about this for a Black Duck Count?
3/11/10   4226   E.B. Forsythe NWR

ebird sure is a great tool to have someone doing the scouting for you!
Anyone want to guess where the highest concentration of Wood Ducks are in NJ?  It too is on ebird!

Thanks John!

It gives us a pretty good idea of what specie's are wintering and moving thru NJ.
