The Common Ravens have been putting on quite a show at Whitesbog. If you are entering an eBird checklist for Whitesbog, please use one of the two Hotspots already loaded. One is for Burlington County and the other is for Ocean County. The county line bisects Whitesbog shortly after Union Pond (the first pond on your left after leaving the village).
