CMBO Cape May Point State Park Walk- 7/12/08

It looks like the Cape May Point State Park walk participants had a nice morning.  After all, 53 species in the middle of summer form a two or so hour walk, is nothing to shake a stick at.  While it did start to get hot in the later morning , it's been a very nice day to be out birdwatching.  It will be interesting to see what the evening reveals.

"The CMBO walk through the State Park produced a couple of birds not seen
lately, i.a., 2 Brown Thrashers and a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher. Not many shore
birds on the ground, but a number of fly over Least sandpipers. We finished
the walk by adjourning to Ste. Mary's jetty where a reported Brant was found
on the beach."
