My favorite birds of the month are the beautiful ones like Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Blue Grosbeak, Indigo Bunting, & Baltimore Oriole. My biggest accomplishment of the month was tracking down the elusive Yellow-breasted Chat at Assunpink. The serendipitous moment of the month was the Summer Tanager at Horicon Lake I found with a remote assist from Pete.
June is a notoriously slow month for birding, so I don't anticipate adding many new birds to the year list, and thus, not as many posts as this month. Today was the 152nd consecutive day I listed a bird (Orchard Oriole) on Bird A Day. If I don't get sick of doing it, I think I have decent shot at 300 days in a row.
I wandered all over the state and listed 171 species, not counting the Chukar in Colliers Mills or the weirdo ducks down on Great Bay Blvd.
Counties birded: Atlantic, Cape May, Cumberland, Middlesex, Mercer, Monmouth, Ocean (somehow I managed to skip Burlington this month)
