Yellow-throated Warblers are IN at Jake’s Landing and Belleplain State Forest (Cape May Co.) as of this morning, and were not detected at Jake’s during several visits yesterday. Pine Warblers have been in for a while now, are quite numerous at both locations as well. Also this morning at Jakes was a FOY N. Rough-winged Swallow, 45-ish Glossy Ibis and 7 Osprey. The marshes are dotted with Great Egrets and Great Blue Herons, and a number of Snowy Egrets were also seen on the drive up Rt. 47 from Cape May to Jake’s Landing. At Belleplain we also had a single Eastern Phoebe, but the Sunset Bridge area was quiet with no sign yet of Louisiana Waterthrush, nor an E. Phoebe occupying the preferred nesting area under the bridge itself…only a matter of time!
For those of you who like to visualize migration, be sure to check out the new migration forecasts (www.birdcast.info) and Live migration maps on Cornell’s Birdcast.info site- they’re awesome!
