From Dave Magpiong 5/3

As of Saturday, May 2nd, I've heard from the homeowners that the Green-tailed Towhee at 1147 Mansion Ave in Collingswood is still around.

Also, I've heard reports of Cattle Egret in Camden County. A lone bird was reported in Voorhees. I will try to confirm and report back with details in case anyone is doing an LGA in Camden County.
