Subject: [JERSEYBI] Cape May, 29 Mar -- Iceland Gull, Tricolored Heron, migrants
A small wave of northbound migrants rolled through Cape May today. The Cape
May Springwatch captured a fair morning flight movement that consisted of
47 Pine Warblers, 14 Golden-crowned Kinglets, 5 Eastern Phoebes, 2 Northern
Flickers, and an Eastern Meadowlark, with virtually all birds moving west
through the dunes at Cape May Pt. The Higbee fields hosted 10+ Eastern
Phoebes while Cape May Pt. State Park was home to 15 Pine Warblers and 20+
Golden-crowned Kinglets during the late-AM.

Waterbirds were also on the move this morning, with highlights (most
arriving from the w/sw across Delaware Bay) including the season's first
Tricolored Heron, 51 Great Egrets, 2 Blue-winged Teal, 11 Common Loons, 275
Laughing Gulls, several Forster's Terns, and an Iceland Gull. A full list
from today's Cape May Springwatch session can be found here:

Conditions look favorable for more movement tonight/tomorrow.
