Greater Shearwater, Wilson's Storm-Petrel Off Cape May Pt.

In addition to Don's notes, a late-morning seawatch from the second dune crossover at Cape May Pt. State Park on Monday produced a Greater Shearwater feeding with 100 or so Laughing Gulls about half a mile offshore, as well as a single Wilson's Storm-Petrel in a bit closer.

There were 5 Lesser Black-backed Gulls on the beach between the Meadows and the State Park, in addition to two juvenile Laughing Gulls tagging along with their parents at the Meadows plover pond.
