Birding Cape May Point - Saturday, Dec 17th, 2016

The cold, windy weather may have been the reason nineteen Great Egrets were on the move this morning. Most egrets are long gone, having migrated to warmer climes well before this. These late lingerers have been scattered around the area marshes and have somehow found each other to continue their journey south. Leaders: Kathy & Roger Horn.
