CMBO Cape May Point Walk- 3/29/08

Also, Karl's report on the sightings from today's CMBO Cape May Point walk.

"A nice clear, cold, and windy CMBO Walk at Cape May Point this morning produced a good number of species. A number of ducks still are present on the various ponds, including a Blue-winged Teal drake, and 4 Ring-necked Ducks. We also enjoyed a fly-over Glossy Ibis, and 2 Snowy Egrets. The Gannet show still goes on but this morning was further off shore. Yesterday we estimated well over 2000 off the Concrete Ship! Of interest was a Purple Martin female that visited one of the Martin houses at the State Park as a Tree Swallow flew overhead. We finished up back at the Hawk Watch platform area with a Hermit Thrush and Purple Finch."]
