Cape May Point State Park- slightly belated

Below is our list of species seen at the Cape May Point State Park on Tuesday 10/2. Sorry this post is a little belated, our walk was cut short by the news of the Calliope up in Cumberland County. Which we did not see, of course. Since my days off are in the middle of the week this can make for a slightly delayed posting when domestic duties take precedence.

For those keeping tabs on weather and migration, well, there really has been no weather conducive to pushing migrants down to the Cape May peninsula. It's looking like next Tuesday and or Wednesday should bring about more weather for some good migration. Keep checking into the Birding Forecast for more updates.
