Bird News Links

The Hudson Reporter has a story about a survey of migrating birds currently underway in the New Jersey Meadowlands. The surveyors follow a route and count every bird at each stop. Right now there are 113 stops at 27 locations. 183 species have been recorded so far, including several not recorded in the Meadowlands before the surveys began: common raven, Eurasian wigeon, great cormorant, and wild turkey.

Pete Dunne wrote a piece on Cape May in the fall for the latest issue of Birder's World. (Actually several of the articles from their current issue are available online.) I have not experienced fall migration at Cape May yet, and I probably will not this year either, but I hope to make a fall trip there sometime soon.
