Above Par Birding at Cox Hall Creek - Sunday, October 1st, 2017

Sometimes, a few days after a favorable migration front that drops a lot of birds at Cape May's tip, birds settle in to feed for a few days a bit further up the bayshore, making Cox Hall Creek WMA the place to be. That seemed to be the case today, with eleven species of warblers, many kinglets and a variety of vireos. One of the Blue-headed Vireos was especially kind to us, posing in good light as we admired its fine plumage. Leaders: Kathy Horn, Roger Horn, Janet Crawford, Cindy Bamford, Deb Payson, & Joe Demko.
