It's time for me to pitch the Cape May Spring Weekend to any of you that might be interested in the chance to see Cape May and its birds in the Spring. I know Susan is pushing hard for the flock to head to Magee Marsh and she's promising foot rubs, but Ohio's the weekend before and why not make a week of it and stop by NJ on the way home?
Click on the link above for details. The spring weekend has an entirely different feel than the fall (and hopefully it won't rain the whole time again!) and is worth the trip, if for nothing else than the diminishing spectacle of shorebird migration along Delaware Bay. They're also offering those wonderful back bay cruises that were cancelled for the fall festival.
I haven't been down in the spring for a few years and it makes me sad to know that my memories of stopover shorebirds are history, even now.
Anyway... anybody want to think about it?
