Extralimital Long-billed Murrelet in PA

Paul Lehman stopped in a little while ago to borrow my Pennsylvania Atlas - he was on his way to chase a Long-billed Murrelet. Details from Paul, posted by Laurie Larson on NJBIRDS, follow:

At about 10 AM Jason Horn found a LONG-BILLED MURRELET on Lake Nockamixon in Bucks County. The bird was on the north side of the lake at the Fishing Pier, which is the next access west of the Marina.

The web page of Lake Nockamixon State Park gives the following

Nockamixon State Park is along PA 563, just off of PA 313, five miles east of Quakertown and nine miles west of Doylestown. The main entrances are along PA 563 and can be reached from PA 309 and PA 313, or from the north on PA 412.

Paul also said that a mixed flock of crossbills was at Cape May Point State Park this morning, apparently heard/seen by Michael O'Brien.
