Birding Cape May Point – January 9, 2021

Leaders: Kathy Horn, Bernie Hodgdon, Kyle Chelius

Temp: 32° F

Winds: 15-20 mph NNW

Weather Conditions: Sunny

Ponds and feeders held the birds on this windy, cold day. There are a good variety of ducks on Lily Lake and the State Park ponds. CMBO’s feeders were full at the Northwood Center and a small flock of Purple Finches, along with Red and White-breasted Nuthatches, were taking advantage of it, providing us with good views.
