Rain Rain Go Away?
Vince Elia just poked his head into my office and commented that all this rain is a game changer in terms of shorebird habitat. Bunker Pond, which has been absolutely rocking in terms of shorebirds, could be bank full by day's end, meaning no more shorebird habitat. The South Cape May Meadows, on the other hand, could get better with the rain, to a point. Another spot someone ought to go check is the Cape May County Airport, especially if you can get there at high tide - not that the airport is tidal, of course, but high tide means no place to go for shorebirds, which are of course highly mobile and easily capabable of finding the airport's open, and now quite wet, fields.
