NJ - Cape Mays in Cape May

Cape May Warblers - Cape May Point, Cape May, NJ. September 29th, and October 1st, 2011.

Images from the recent Birdfinders tour of Cape May (Sep 25th - October 2nd, 2011) - a selection from the best display of Cape May Warblers that we've seen on this particular tour. Up to ten Cape Mays graced the picturesque gardens of Cape May Point and the birds seemed oblivious to their ever growing audience.

Awesome photos James, and a great range of plumages.

Thanks Nick. I noticed on the Cape May blog that you had a short visit there. How did it go?

I spent 48 hrs in Cape May (which is actually closer to home than I remembered) and hit a decent cold front. The hawks were great but I just missed a Swainson's that passed a couple hours before I arrived and was not at the hawkwatch the next day when an apparent Gray Kingbird flew past.

By far the highlight of the visit was the hour or so Tom Johnson and I spent with a Upland Sandpiper that nearly walked onto Tom's leg! I'll be posting photos and a short video to my blog in the coming days - I'm a bit behind on the blogging at the moment.
