The First Wednesday CMBO Cape May Point walk

The sightings info below was just sent to me from Karl Lukens. Remember that you can check the Naturalist Calendar to find out all CMBO daily walk, workshop and special programing information. This particular walk continues thru May. If you were hoping to bird Cape May Point and missed today's walk you might try my Test Drive the Optics walk on Sunday afternoon, starting at 3:00 at the Northwood Center.

"The first CMBO Wednesday morning walk at Cape May Point started out with a great, close-up, Northern Gannet show, with a mixture of Black and Surf Scoters, plus 3 White-winged Scoters, and Red-throated Loons. Ducks included both Blue- and Green-winged Teal, Gadwall, and Wigeon. Some of the land birds seen were Wilson's Snipe, numerous Golden-crowned Kinglets, and Red-breasted Nuthatches, plus the usual suspects."
