Early-morning Treats

Scott Whittle was out early with his Tuesday morning photographic group and reported two Gull-billed Terns, 21 Short-billed Dowitchers, two Greater Yellowlegs, 30+ Least Sandpipers and 35 Glossy Ibis all on Bunker Pond at Cape May Point State Park. At least 18 Bobolinks were in the area too - fall migration is heading our way!
