More fun birding in Cape May area.
Yesterday morning we thought we would change it up and go on a bird walk in the woods. We were able to hook up with a group out of CMBO, to bird Belleplain State Forest.
I always find it helpful to be on these walks with so many knowledgeable people..
Besides learning the birds and their songs and call notes…I want to learn more about where they live..and when.
I really don't like to read technical books…So I rely on outings like this to pick up knowledge along with reading other Birdie blogs.
There weren't many Passerines in the area. We did see and hear some good birds.
Mostly, my photos of warblers and small birds are blurry and distant shots..I wont share those with you!
I did happen to get a few decent shots.
Acadian Flycatcher Yellow Breasted Chat I still like to look down as well as up when I bird…
This area below..near the bridge is one of the hot spots for birding here.
After Belleplain we took a drive to East point lighthouse. Stopped at the impoundments at Heislerville to see the Curlew Sandpipers again and then went to
Reeds Beach to see some Red Knots.
I like this time of year, for bird ID..Its easier for me with their breeding plumage…otherwise I am lost in a brown/gray haze of birds that all look alike.I couldn't get enough of all the beautiful colors.
Do you see the Red Knots? Check out their red chest..I love the orange legs of the Ruddy turnstone.
If you didn't get enough ..watch the feeding frenzy via Video.
How about you Sickstas and mothers..Are you getting sick of seeing Birds?
Do you think your Daughter, Sicksta is sprouting wings?
