Stone Harbor birds, Rough-legged at Cape May Point

I heard from Swing Counter Dan Berard that a Rough-legged Hawk was seen from near the concrete ship yesterday in the early afternoon.

Mike Fritz's report (above) from last evening's Stone Harbor field trip definitely will make you want to join the last one of the year, next Tuesday October 28 at 4:30 p.m. As Jason points out, of particular note are Mike's pre-walk sharp-tailed sparrows - 17 (!) Nelson's and 10 Salt Marsh. Salt sparrows are had only with substantial effort. If you're not the wader-donning sort, the best bet is a calm early morning along the marsh edge, with plenty of squeaking and pishing thrown in.
