Another good day

This Cape May seems to have more white in the wings, but it could just be the difference in lighting.


I had a total of 70 species at the Bashakill this morning. I managed 17 species of warbler and most other regulars at this time. There are still a lot of birds that have yet to show ie. cuckoos, flycatchers etc. but it was still a good morning. Back at home, my oranges continue to draw Cape May Warblers. Here is the question, I thought it was the same bird that frequented the oranges yesterday (maybe it is) but when I compared all of todays photos with yesterdays photos, todays bird seems to have much more extensive white in the wings than either of yesterdays birds. I guess we’ll never know for sure. My only new warbler at the Bash today was a nice male WILSON’S WARBLER at the Nature Trail.

    Fantastic Photo of the Cape May John! I’ve yet to see either bird. Do you think fresh oranges might coax one to stop by my Rock Hill feeder?

  2. Truth,
    I always advocate feeding oranges. My Catbirds, Sapsuckers, Downy and Red-bellied Woodpeckers and Baltimore Orioles all feed on them with relish. The Cape May was a bonus I couldn’t have imagined. It certainly can’t hurt to give it a try! Best, John

  4. Thanks guys! Look forward to seeing you this weekend!
