Warblers up close in the Point!

The Siberian Elms in Cape May Point are once again attracting bugs and their attendant warblers. These trees are notoriously buggy in September and October here in Cape May, and today were pulling in good numbers of warblers, including Northern Parulas, Black-throated Blue Warblers, Blackpoll Warblers, and Cape May Warblers. The trees can provide amazing views down to a few feet away as the warblers gobble up small insects at eye level. One spot that was particular hot this evening was an elm along East Lake Drive just south of the CMBO Northwood Center. [both photos copyright Tom Johnson]
