Thanks, Purbita for the shout-out! No Henslow's that I'm aware of in
Shawangunk this year. I visited in early June, as did many other birders
from late May onward, but no eBird reports of this species.. so unless
folks are keeping their sightings under wraps, its probably fair to say
that they didn't return. Ebird shows a few Henslow's reports in NYS near
Watertown (Jefferson County; no pics or audio files) in late May/early
June, but that's it for the whole state. All other Henslow's sightings this
year are much further south and west.  The one in Negri-Neponte Grasslands
(Somerset County, NJ) is still being reported, and I listened to a few of
those eBird audio files --- did not match either of the Shawangunk
individuals.  Was not expecting it to, but wanted confirmation.  Hopefully
anyone with additional intel to share will reply here or off-list.

Best,
Karen
