And thanks to Harvey for posting his sightings, his adventures with birds,
his questions and musings.

I don't use ebird and I won't use facebook so JerseyBirds and the
Burlington county emails are my major sources of bird news locally. My
local patches offer great birding but I travel around the state, too.

Thanks to all who post - regularly or not!
