Sora from Cape May

Sora

Chris spotted this Sora at the Meadows in Cape May. After seeing the Least Bittern earlier in the day, we were hopeful to see some other life birds, so Chris was scanning the shores carefully while Mike was following the Skimmers. She was not able to identify the Sora at first, but we both knew it was something we had not seen before. Fortunately some other birders joined us and we were able with their help to identify it. We kept watch for a while, and it turned out there were a total of three Soras running about for us to watch. Great fun! Nice ending to a good birding day.

I always admire watching this kind of bird that so rare to see. I hope I could see it in personal so I could take a closer look. :D

We were happy to have a birder point out a least bittern to us near the bird blind at Cape May Point State Park.

Black Bellied Whistling Ducks


We hoped to see the black bellied whistling ducks that have been at Cape May Point State Park. They were resting on a platform by the bird blind.

Monarch Butterfly from Cape May



We went to Cape May to go birding but were surprised and amazed at the number of butterflies. The fall migration of the monarchs is impressive.

We saw lots of what looked to be monarch butterflies all over Hoboken and Jersey City Heights on Saturday! They really lifted the mood. I have never noticed anything close to that many butterflies in the area all at once before, and would love to know if there was a reason for it.
