November 15 - Cape May Day Tripping

We took the long ride down to Cape May today so we could see the rare Cave Swallows which have been in the area for a few days.  Before we arrived a text message was sent out that nearby an Ash-Throated Flycatcher was being seen near the Magnesite Plant, so we made that out first stop.   Instantly we saw a Baltimore Oriole and then the rare Flycatcher.

We then stopped at the Rea Farm Beanery where we saw an Orange-Crowned Warbler and also a Western Kingbird that was expertly spied by friend Jennifer.

Later we saw dozens of the Cave Swallows in flight over the hawkwatch and also sitting on the beach.
