We're Off to See the Wigeon. . .
Emerging from the tax accountant's at 6:00 p.m. and discovering it was still daylight, I thought, what better way to celebrate the prospects of a tax return that might cover a new camera body than to run off and chase the male Eurasian Wigeon found by Matt Webster in Cape May today? So that's what I did. The bird was exactly where Matt reported, between Lighthouse Pond east and West at Cape May Point State Park, so one had only to walk in on the red trail boardwalk past the deafening trills of Spring Peepers, lift binoculars, and say "check." With a nod to the 5 Purple Martins circling overhead, another year bird for me. I admit little skill was involved in this endeavor, but it did take the gumption to forego the celebratory beer for an hour.
