Subject: [JERSEYBI] Gyrfalcon -- evening update
The Gyrfalcon continued on the north/west side of Nummy Island through the
afternoon, primarily on the sand patch that is south (left) of the big
dredge spoil mound. Around 4:15pm it returned to the same Osprey platform
where it spent some time this morning (closer to the road & cedar
grove/bridge). It eventually flew off shortly before 5:00pm and headed west
across the marsh. There was some confusion as to whether the bird
eventually ended up near the Wetlands Institute or continued west toward
Cape May Court House, but either way, we're hopeful that it will again be
in the area tomorrow.

Updates (+ or -) will be shared here tomorrow, and CMBO's Twitter account
(@cmbobirds) will again broadcast reports as they come in. Some freezing
rain/sleet is in the forecast for the overnight and Monday morning, so
please take it easy on the roads.


best,
tr
