Kathy Horn reports from CMBO's Sunday Villas WMA walk: "Good birding at Villas this AM, despite the drizzle. We had at least 18 pine warblers with lots of trilling, as well as 2 red-headed woodpeckers, and several each of ruby-crowned and golden-crowned kinglets and eastern phoebes."
I also learned that on April 23rd the NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife will be planting trees on approximately 1.5 acres of an old fairway at Villas WMA. This planting is for mitigation of the destruction of critical wildlife habitat. The area will be clearly marked with signage to demonstrate the purpose of the project.
