And Now, for Something Completely Different. . . or, the Columbus Approach
Why go to Cape May, a mere 15 minute drive away, where the season's first Golden Eagle soared and a big Yellow-rumped Warbler flight happened today, when you can set sail for points north, in Pines not quite Barren?
Yeah, well, Columbus went off to the unknown and, in honor of his day, so did we, first for a hike in Bass River State Forest, then a drive to see the world from the top of the Pine Barrens. Two places we've never been before, but likely will return to.
The Pines were surprisingly birdy, including Hermit Thrush, Swainson's Thrush, many kinglets of both kinds. . .yeah, okay, it wasn't Cape May, but it was kind of pretty.
