Chuck and Mary Jane Slugg shared the list below from today's CMBO Bird Walk for All People. No matter what you may think, there is still good birding to be had in Cape May even though migration is past. Summer is the time for observing breeding behaviors and looking for chicks. Just this morning we had a male Eastern Bluebird feeding a fledgling, on top of our mail box at home. Seeing this in the front yard is a pretty nice way to start the day in my opinion.

Location: Cape May Point SP
Observation date: 6/12/08
Notes: The Walk for All People this morning had many birders, including four children. We were joined by Maureen, a reporter from the Cape May County Herald. We had some great looks at piping plover, including one chick.
Number of species: 38
