Off to Cape May

Well, I know that I said I live in Western Massachusetts, so you’d expect a lot of wildlife from there but I’ve been traveling this summer so here are some pics and video of an incredible Nature Conservancy preserve in Cape May.  They’ve rehabilitated a phragmites wetland into a highly productive catty nine tail wetland plus they’ve roped off much of the shoreline for shore birds.  Yesterday I tagged along with an Audubon Society hike, it was pretty foggy but the leader was great.  Today, my mother and I hiked the mile path and saw American oystercatchers (Haematopus palliatus), a Halloween pennant dragon fly (Celithemis eponina) terns, and even a deer!
