A Winter Wren continues to sing on Snake Hill Road, Rockaway Township. Originally found by Simon Lane on June 9, the Wren was still singing occasionally this morning.

A Least Bittern was observed from the overlook on Pleasant Plains Rd, Great Swamp NWR on the evening of June 20 (Simon Lane). This is the only report of this species in either Morris or Somerset Counties in 2013.
