The BOBOLINKS are still active at Hoffman Park in Pattenberg, Hunterdon County, along with GRASSHOPPER SPARROW. Exit 78 at pattenberg-West Portal, go left on the access road, and bear right on Baptist Church Road to Hoffman Park on the left.

The same birds are active at Brightview Farm in Chesterfield, Burlington County. From the intersection of 537 and 545, go north on 545 a short distance to Brightview on the right.
