From Jamie Glydon at Troy Meadows:
Red-eyed Vireo, Blue-winged Warbler, Black-and-white Warbler (3), Chestnut-sided Warbler, Canada Warbler.

Also at Troy Meadows: Wood Duck (4), Great Blue Heron (2), Green Heron, Eastern Wood-Pewee (5), Eastern Kingbird (3), Common Yellowthroat (5) and Swamp Sparrow (8).

From Leslie Webster:
News from Loantaka Brook Reservation: a Winter Wren was singing in the woods and popped up into full view. A Yellow-Throated Vireo was singing at Kitchell Pond, joining the one or two Red-Eyed Vireos still singing. Two Spotted Sandpipers gave themselves a good bath and grooming, while two Killdeer and two Least Sandpipers foraged nearby. No warblers were spotted on this trip.

From Tim Vogel, Denville:
St. Clare’s fields, Denville
19 Killdeer this morning – numbers keep building. Hopefully they will pull something else in.

Great Swamp NWR:
Simon Lane viewed an Olive–sided Flycatcher near the North Gate of Pleasant Plains Rd., this morning – same individual as the previous evening? – a new arrival?
