A Say’s Phoebe was reported from Negri-Nepote Native Grassland Preserve on Sunday, Oct. 18 by Jacob Socolar. This is previously reported on the JerseyBirds listserv as well as eBird. Jacob sent mocosocoBirds the link to his checklist which has a detailed description of the sighting. The link to that checklist is here.
This will be a Somerset County first record of Say’s Phoebe if accepted by the New Jersey Bird Records Committee.

Two great birds for Somerset County. Nice job by the observers in both instances getting good photos. Go Mocosoco!
