Jeanette woke early to start our first day in Cape May after a healthy sleep at Congress Hall. I rolled out of bed around 9:30AM. Mine was perfect timing in fact, to see the first “Jersey Birding” report of the previous day’s Painted Bunting at Island Beach State Park on the computer. I gathered Jeanette and we headed out it hopes of landing another life bird and a personal favorite. A male it wasn’t but a female would be just as exciting should we get a chance to see her. We arrived a little before Noon and as soon as we got out of the car I spotted a small green bird sitting on one of the numerous feeders. We got a bunch of pictures and were generally enjoying the bird until a sudden bird exodus led us to believe a hawk was near. Sure enough, minutes later a Sharp-shinned Hawk came gliding through the tree tops stopping briefly to rest and examine lunch possibilities. Another highly entertaining afternoon birding.
