Fall Migration Wrap Up

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?

Good Birding

David

    David,

    I just wanted to thank you for the time and effort you put into this
    site. I’ve enjoyed visiting here last year and this. I’ve even
    shared it with people on the Delaware list and some
    non birding friends at work. Keep up the good work!

    Thanks again,

    David, it has been a awhile since we spoke. Quite busy here at Duke right now, but i wanted to let you know that there are now 3-4 Bald Eagles here at the estate right now. The best part is that i think they are considering staying around for a while as they have been here for about 2 weeks now. One other thing of note: I discovered a Ross’s goose in with two Snow Geese here on one of our lakes about a week ago and it is still here daily as of today. I thought you would enjoy that. Talk to you soon
