We spotted 6 Horned Grebes in various stages of transition to breeding plumage at Gloucester Point Beach. 2 were North of the bridge (to your right as you face the river) in the canal , and one of those was very close to full breeding plumage. Beautiful looks on a sunny day!
In our yard the past 2 weeks, we've had at least 30 and up to 150 Cedar Waxwings EVERY day. Quite a treat! We have several large holly bushes loaded with berries, and they take turns visiting those (when our resident Mockingbird doesn't chase them away).
