A Black-necked Stilt was discovered at Bunker Pond (Cape May Pt. State Park) this morning, and was still present as of 11:55am. It temporarily vanished a couple times, once appearing to drop in at the South Cape May Meadows before returning a brief time later. Quite unseasonal, this individual potentially represents the first November record for Cape May.
A few Cave Swallows can still be found around Cape May today, though numbers are nowhere near the ca. 250 of Friday. A Short-eared Owl was seen well from the hawkwatch, single Clay-colored Sparrows were noted at Cape May Pt. and the Rea Farm, and at least 3 Golden Eagles have been detected at Cape Island so far today.
