An unbelievable day. The World Series of Birding was going on and we had a morning filled with unbelievable winged visitors. Multiple Cerulean Warblers seen and heard!
Our first day in Cape May. Beautiful Indigo Bunting, Blue Grosbeak and Yellow-breasted Chat were a humble beginning to a truly special weekend of birding.
Right around the corner is an open drainage area surrounded by trees, bushes and a considerable pond. While the selection of birds may be some what limited, the convenience and accessibility make it a great place to make a quick stop off on the way home from work. Jeanette and I wandered in on our first Spring as “birders” and saw our first Yellow-rumped Warbler(s), an energetic Brown Thrasher, a tan-striped White-throated Sparrow and a composed, resting Turkey Vulture. Yellow Warblers (Jeanette’s first) were also seen.
