|Sunset on the first of our several guided birdwalks in Cape May, NJ.|
It's the season for bird migration here, and therefore birder season.
Yesterday I posted a few photos of our visit here. This post adds a few more.
|Birders heading home at sunset.|
|Near the Hawkwatch platform:|
A non-native black swan. Someone brought it from Australia or New Zealand,
it got away, and no one knows who let it go.
|Monarch butterflies are also in migration. Like the birds they fly down the New Jersey peninsula and then wait for|
a good moment to start across the water and continue flying south.
|Tree swallows in large numbers were circling around and also resting on the beach and on fences yesterday before continuing their flight.|

|The "Osprey" -- the birdwatching cruise boat that we took yesterday.|
This is really a travel post, but I wanted to share it here!
