DELAWARE BAY OF NEW JERSEY & DELAWARE
CAPE MAY POINT & BOMBAY HOOK NWR21 May 2017 - 26 May 2017, 6 days & 5 nights
Cape May Point State Park, Forsythe (Brigantine) NWR, Bombay Hook NWR, Cape Henlopen State Park, and many great locations along both sides of the Delaware Bay - - we will visit all of these locations and several more on this pre-Memorial Day Tour. The focus will be the Delaware Bay, where Horseshoe Crabs gather each spring to lay their eggs. Just as reliably, thousands of shorebirds and other aquatic species stop during their northbound migration to feed on the bountiful food supply. Expect Red Knot, Ruddy Turnstone, Semipalmated Sandpiper, and many additional species. We'll also look for migrant and breeding songbirds at Higbee Beach that may include Black-billed Cuckoo, Yellow-bellied Flycatcher, Blue Grosbeak, and Yellow-breasted Chat. We've included a crossing on the Cape May-Lewes Ferry to search for a few pelagic species, perhaps Wilson's Storm-Petrel and Parasitic Jaeger. This will be a great tour with many excellent birds in south Jersey and central Delaware, and a few rarities almost to be expected. The tour leader has yet to be selected. We will take a maximum of seven participants. On rare occasion we may extend the maximum to ten participants.
