March Wrap-up

Eastern Bluebird, Bunker Hill Bogs
It was a good month with 120 species found in total and 12 years birds. For the first time this year I birded outside the state, having to make way too many trips to New York City in one month, but at least it got me my year Black-capped Chickadee.

Other notable birds were the continuing Harris's Sparrow in Mercer County; the continuing avocets down on Absecon Creek; FOY Piping Plovers and Wilson's Snipes on the same day; yesterday's sightings of both an American Kestrel and Monk Parakeets; birding excursions with our friends Bob, Mike, Pete, & Greg.
