An evening at the Cape May Point State Park- 7/22/07

Since it was such a beautiful day yesterday, after work we decided to take a stroll around the State Park to see if we could find the Black tern that has been hanging around the last couple of days.

Well, no luck with the tern but a list of what we did observe is below. With the rain this morning I'm glad I took that walk yesterday. Migration just isn't strong enough yet for me to want to get out of bed and bird in the rain.
