Black-headed Gull

[Black-headed Gull, with a Ring-billed Gull, on the beach north of the Ferry Terminal this morning. Bright red legs, red bill, dark under the primaries all separate from Bonaparte's. Click to enlarge. This bird was discovered a couple days ago, I believe by Steve Kerr.]

Besides the Black-headed Gull, the American Kestrel continues along Bayshore Road, Rusty Blackbirds are still at the Beanery, and American Woodcock, Fox Sparrows, etc. are all around. Two Red-breasted Nuthatches and a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker were near the Cape May Point State park entrance this morning. Check Field Trip Reports for various bird sightings today. A number of CMBO naturalists are off for our annual Newburyport, MA field trip tomorrow, and a few highlights may appear here, but we'll still keep you up to date on sightings around Cape May.
