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!
