A few thoughts about Willets and Ticks--

1.  NJ joined the willet club today 4/17 (three days behind CT), reporting
its first-of-year E.Willets today, at least ten of them at Brigantine,
pretty much on their normal schedule there.

2.  ZERO willets have yet been reported on the bird lists of NY, RI, MA, NH
or ME.

3.  While reading the NJ bird list I noticed a lot of worry about ticks
this year:

BE CAREFUL, it seems like a bad year for ticks and their several nasty
diseases.
