My wife and I rang in the New Year's down in Cape May at the Grand Hotel with some friends.
I was able to do a little birding over this weekend, but I missed seeing the Varied Thrush which is at the Cox Hall Creek WMA, although I tried for several hours.
I did see the Red- Headed Woodpecker at Cox Hall, and also saw the Black Swan on Bunker Pond. This Swan is a likely escapee.
Other goodies were Eurasian Wigeon, Blue-Winged Teal, and Little Blue Heron...the latter two likely due to this El Nino winter which has brought warm temperatures throughout the region.
