Cape May, New Jersey - USA

  • I visited twice, once from 14 - 21 June 1997 and between 29 September – October 2000. I stayed mainly around Cape May with few excursions outside this spot. Cape May is situated on the most southern tip of New Jersey, 100 km from Philadelphia and 200 km from New York. I noted here what species I recorded and where. Three trips outside Cape May County, were to Seeley for cranes, Forsythe for ducks and to Chedar Ville for the Loggerhead Shrike...Justin Jansen reports.
