One response to “Big migration over Jersey”

  1. Went down to Cape May yesterday morning and got home this evening. We got to the morning flight site at Higbees around 8:30 and the place was hopping with raptors, the bulk being Sharp Shinned Hawks. They came fast and hard for the time we were there. The Hawkwatch at Cape May SP was also great with many accipiters and a season high total of 19 Bald Eagles for the day. 2 Golden Eagles came by mid-afternoon. Did see the first Cave Swallow of the season as well.There was a good flight of robins today and the quantity of raptors was down from yesterday at the Hawkwatch but within the space of 1 minute a gorgeous imm. Golden Eagle flew in giving fabulous views and 30 seconds later a Rough Legged Hawk flew in almost the same binocular viewing space. About 1 hour later a Anhinga flew in close to the Hawkwatch platform circled for a little while and then took off in a hurry. That was a lot of excitement in a short period of time. Earlier in the morning a Short Eared Owl was seen in flight low over Bunker Pond before it disappeared from view.
    It was a great 2 days in Cape May.
