From Jenifer Books: This morning I went birding at Scherman Hoffman Sanctuary in Bernardsville. Highlights included seeing several FOY Rose-breasted Grosbeaks (look for them near or on the feeders), my FOY Cedar Waxwing, a Wood Thrush, a FOY Black-throated Blue Warbler, and hearing a Common Yellowthroat. Also noted were several Flickers, a Gnatcatcher nest, House Wrens, Barn and Tree swallows, and Chimney Swifts among others.
In addition, I went over to the Great Swamp Visitors Center in the hopes of finding the Bobolinks reported there yesterday but unfortunately was unsuccessful.
