The light morph Rough-legged Hawk found yesterday on Pleasant Plains Rd., Great Swamp NWR, continued today at various locations along the road: from a roost viewed from the overlook to another roost northeast from the 90 degree bend in the road, and elsewhere.

Early this afternoon, a dark morph Rough-legged Hawk was reported from Island Road in Hunterdon County, flying towards Rattlesnake Road in Bedminster Twp., Somerset County (David Bernstein).

A Pine Siskin continues at the Scherman Hoffman Sanctuary feeders in Bernardsville (Tom Smith via eBird).
