A very strong rumor suggests that tomorrow morning it could well be worth your while being at Cape May Point - the weather patterns bode well for a rush of birds!!
Audubon's Yellow-rumped Warbler at Cape May Point this morning. Besides the obvious trademark yellow throat (which forms a much smaller pale throat mark than the extensive white patch on Myrtle Warbler), note the lack of a white supercilium, gray face, more extensive white edges to the greater coverts and more extensive black blotching on the breast [photo by Mike Crewe].
Yellow-throated Warbler - one of two that at one point were both in the same tree beside Lake Lily this morning. Note the small amount of yellow on the front of the supercilium - I don't know what this means if you want to know what subspecies it is! [photo by Mike Crewe].
Other news today included Prothonotary Warbler at Belleplain, Virginia Rail calling at South Cape May Meadows and a Stilt Sandpiper at the latter site late on Saturday. The Sandhill Crane seen at the start of Saturday morning's Beanery walk did not get reported today.
