A bunch of folks gathered on the platform to wish Jessie well today. Steve Bauer brought a cake, and the Sluggs and Breslows provided coffee and hot chocolate. Cave Swallows passed regularly, most not even mentioned, and I joked that now we needed to check the cAve's for Cliff's, not the other way around. A Baltimore Oriole fed in the cedars over the pavilion. During the festivities, Arthur, one of the banders, brought over a recently caught Northern Goshawk. I missed that show, I had left and was just pulling up again as it was released. As a consolation, from the parking lot I heard and saw an Evening Grosbeak flying over, north of the platform.
The Bullock's Oriole was seen again today by Lloyd Shaw (his 317th NJ year bird, I believe) and others.
