[American Woodcock are somewhat common during Cape May County winters, sometimes displaying as early as January on nice evenings. This one was unusually cooperative in the wet woods at Beaver Swamp WMA at lunchtime. Click to enlarge.]
Other birds at Beaver Swamp included Yellow-bellied Sapsucker and 2 Hermit Thrushes. The local Bald Eagles there were absent, and the open water was 90% frozen.
