From Alan Boyd:
Hi Jonathan – This afternoon I had two different Connecticut Warblers at Black River WMA (Chester Twp.). I was in the NE section, coming in from the parking lot at the intersection of Ironia Rd and Catan Dr. – Alan Boyd

From Terry Caruthers:
Hi Jon – A morning walk along Pleasant Plains Rd. in the Great Swamp produced about a dozen Yellow-rumps, 15 Palm Warblers, a Winter Wren and two Lincoln’s Sparrows. On Friday, I had a possible Mississippi Kite over route 78 near Clinton, but could not stop to look for the bird. – Regards, Terry

From Dave Emma:
Hi Jonathan – There was a Wilson’s Snipe in the small pond on the left in Robert Stahl Natural Area, Bedminster this afternoon. A few Lincoln’s Sparrows were around as well. Does anyone happen to know what they are doing with this location? They got rid of one of the best sparrow bushes, and completely mowed one of the back fields.
