Sighting for February 21, 2016

Tom Bailey

Palmyra Cove NP
Burlington County, NJ

Briefly landed twice but took off before I could get a photo. Ironically, I was clearing saplings
out of a meadow area to improve it for grasses/sedges/flowers for butterflies when he flew in
right where I was working!
