Cape May "Storm" Birding Today!

What a day here in Cape May, NJ ( the "birding capital of the world"). So, out this morning in rain, rain! fog, 30-50mph wind! wow! It really paid off for the regular observers at Avalon Beach, with a record count of over 132,000 birds by 2:30PM, screaming by in the fierce winds in huge flocks !!!

And it also paid off for Kim & I, today's new sightings:
Black & Surf Scoters, Red Throated Loons, Brant Geese, White Rumped Sandpiper, so a pretty good day considering!
