Autumn Weekend: Monday

Although the festivities officially ended on Sunday, some of us remained in Cape May on Monday morning. I was lured to the hawkwatch platform (the green circle) at Cape May Point State Park to see the sunrise. (As always, click on an image to see a larger version.)

Despite the cold (yes, I am a weather wuss), I loved being there and seeing the sky come alive as the sun slowly rose behind the clouds to the east. The 90 minutes at the platform with fun birders -- and, of course, neat birds like Northern Harriers and low-flying Cooper's Hawks -- kept me happy through the morning/afternoon/evening of travel west to Orange County.

It was great seeing you again, Amy! Too bad you're cooped up in that booth so much of the time - glad you got to see a nice Cape May sunrise anyway.

Likewise, Laura! I hope we can gab in person before next October (maybe during World Series in May?).

You do world series in Cape May? Hmmm... I'd have to miss my usual date with the Sandy Hook team, but it sounds like a fun idea!

I get to play corporate cheerleader for a sponsored team but don't compete on a team myself.

It was during a World Series that Jeff B. and Ben L. introduced me to the fun of a Big Day -- although, we did only 16 hours and called it a Gran De.

Wow, great photos! Glad you got some outside/birding time in, after being in the booth forever.
