CMBO Cape May Point walk- 1/31/09

(Photo courtesy of Karl Lukens;

Karl Lukens send word of the bird findings from today's Cape May Point walk. While cold and windy kept me inside today I am kicking myself for not getting you and seeing the White-winged Crossbills the group was graced with! After all 54 species on a cold January day is not all that bad.

"Another cold and windy day for the CMBO Cape May Point Walk. We were
rewarded however, by a visit of 13 White-winged Crossbills that sat down for
1-2 minutes in the Pine Trees at Whillden Ave. and the dunes before flying
off. Also a good variety of ducks including a female Redhead and what looked
like female Lesser Scaup. Purple Sandpipers and Ruddy Turnstones were making
their rounds of the jetties."
