Subject: Fork-tailed Flycatcher, Cape May
This morning at 6:45 AM Karl Lukens and others found a Fork-tailed Flycatcher along New England Road, just east of the Higbee parking lots. It did not remain long, allowing only a few of us to arrive in time to see it before it flew off at 7:20 AM. It was last seen flying south over the tree line. It was originally found on the wires east of the two Higbee parking lots in the open area around the houses along New England Road (approximately 1/4 mile)..
As of 8:45 the flycatcher had not reappeared.
Just a reminder that is if the flycatcher does reappear and/or you opt to look for it in hopes of it returning, do not park along New England Road. Please park at Higbees and walk down to the location.
Cape May, NJ
The Curlew Sandpiper at Stone Harbor and the Purple Gallinule at Allendale Celery Farm were both present yesterday, Saturday, 18 August. Reports from S. Keller & J. Williams -LL
