Yesterday morning Denise and I drove down to the Shawangunk Grasslands National 
Wildlife Refuge in Ulster County, arriving shortly after 8 in search of the 
Henslow's Sparrow and Dickcissel previously posted by Tom Williams on Facebook. 
With information from folks in the parking lot we headed for the south blind 
and the large gathering of birders along the trail about 100 years before the 
blind, all enjoying looks at the Henslow's Sparrow. After taking some photos of 
this life bird for Denise,  we continued to the blind and photographed the 
Dickcissel, unfortunately in poor light. A bit later, the Henslow's came much 
closer to the trail,in good light,and we finally got some better looks at the 
Dickcissel as well. There were also numerous grasshopper sparrows and bobolinks 
around, along with other species. Our ebird list is at the link below, and has 
photos of the Henslow's and Dickcissel. This is a great opportunity folks...

The photos are also on my personal Facebook page and our Naturelogues Facebook 
page.- Scott Stoner and Denise Hackert-Stoner, Albany
