Kicking Off Bird Year 2011
Our fourth annual Kick Off Your Year List in Cape May field trip yielded 76 species and a whole lot of fun. Highlights, besides those pictured, included 8 Marbled Godwits and 5 "western" Willets at Stone Harbor, seen from the north side of the Nummy Island toll bridge; several Purple Finches plus Yellow-bellied Sapsucker and both nuthatches in Cape May Point; Purple Sandpipers in Cape May and at Stone Harbor and Avalon; and some great company! Lists from the sites we visited are up on Field Trip Reports.
