We got an early start this morning. Our first item on the itinerary was taking the Cape May, NJ-to-Lewes, DE ferry departing at 7:00am. We had all 3 scoter species from the ferry today: Surf, White-winged, and Black Scoters.
We landed in Delaware and drove immediately to Cape Henlopen State Park. We easily found Brown-headed Nuthatches at the Nature Center. And the view from the hawk watch platform produced many Northern Gannetts.
We birded the coast of Delaware, the highlight being Bombay Hook NWR. We saw hundreds of American Avocets and a handful of Marbled Godwits. But we dipped on Hudsonian Godwit. We had several very distant Greater Yellowlegs and Willets which were close, but not the real thing.
Today was our last full day of birding in the Mid Atlantic. We saw 88 species today bringing our tour total to 137 species. Our year total is 525 species.
