A day of sunny weather (though a pretty cool breeze) brought a few treats to Cape May Point today with Jim Dowdell hitting gold east of The meadows, near Cove Pool. Here he found a fine collection of one Tree Swallow, three Cliff Swallows and a Cave Swallow - a nice little collection! One thing I forgot to mention for yesterday is that Tony Leukering's Forster's Tern count at Miami Beach in Villas reached 14 birds today. Tony also found a female Eurasian Wigeon on Bunker Pond while out scanning for swallows - about time good old Bunker Pond got a mention here!
Other signs of spring included a couple of Fish Crow reports from south of the canal today (they've all been wintering in a mob somewhere up-county until now) and a gradual, continued increase in the bird song volume. Woodcocks were making silly noises in our yard again this evening!
