So it looks like Fall Migration has come to an end. Really though, it hasn’t stopped altogether, but the majority of southbound migrants have made their way out of the north and down toward their wintering grounds in anticipation of the approaching cold. Judging by the reports from the great white north, an owl/winter-finch invasion may be on our horizon in the near future- so get out there and bird!
Although I’ve said it before, I’d like to reiterate a heartfelt thanks to those of you who participated in this website over the past three months, and invite you all to continue visiting and sharing your experiences here at Woodcreeper.com. I’ll be starting up the spring study in mid April and I look forward to your feedback. In the meantime, I hope to run into you in the field, be it on one of Paul Guris’s pelagic trips, or huddling behind the lighthouse at Barnegat trying to get a glimpse of a King Eider, or warming up in the car in-between scanning the ducks at Shark River. On second thought, how about when we find a Northern Hawk Owl at the Somerset Airport…wouldn’t that be nice?
