The Bird Word

Just a quick note to get the word out on a few good finds today.

Earlier in the day two BUFF-BREASTED SANDPIPERS were seen at the Cape May Point State Park.  I believe the birds were seen in  the Plover Pond area.

At around 4:20 (and currently still being seen @ 5:15 that I know of) this afternoon a LONG-TAILED JAEGER was found from St. Peter's jetty in Cape May Point.  The bird is being seen chasing terns and gulls around in the rips off shore.

Lastly, an AMERICAN AVOCET was found at the Tuckahoe WMA near the first spill way.  The area is said to be very good for shorebirds right now.
