Hi all –
While not a total surprise, a fair number of Cave Swallows arrived at Cape
May today on NW winds. I counted 46 moving west past the dunes at Cape May
Pt. between 10am–4pm, including a single flock of 7. A few others were
noted along the beachfront in Cape May City. Also in the mix were a few
Chimney Swifts and Cliff Swallows, along with 14+ Barn Swallows.
A modest but enjoyable hawk flight took shape during the afternoon hours,
highlighted by a Golden Eagle briefly seen at Cape May Pt. and the Rea
Farm, a number of male Harriers, and what was probably the season's last
noticeable push of Merlins and Kestrels.
