July Arrives In Cape May- State Park Notes

[A most cooperative Yellow-breasted Chat showing off at the State Park on this first morning of July. Photo by Karl Lukens.]

"CMBO Cape May Point Walk at the State Park. For this walk there are several target birds and we got all but one. We got several Indigo Buntings, heard and saw fly 2 Willow Flycatchers, heard 3 Chats and got one in the scope, had nice scope views of an adult male Orchard Oriole, but missed the Blue Grosbeak. Good views of the usual terns but no unusual terns or gulls. A little rain shower caught us as we finished."

- Karl, (Steve, Patty, Tom)

In other news, a Sandwich Tern was loafing on the inaccessible walkway over Bunker Pond this afternoon, and a Roseate Tern was seen on the beach between the State Park and the Meadows late this morning.
