Last week we spent a few days away in Cape May, New Jersey which is a birding hot spot on the east coast of the USA, as it is on a major migration flyway. In the fall, there is a very famous hawkwatch there run by the Audubon Society in conjunction with the Cape May Bird Observatory. We were lucky to have west and northwest winds and spent almost the entire day on the platform in Cape May Point State Park, whirling around trying to photograph the seemingly endless stream of falcons (it was a big day for falcons...different species come through at different times during the fall. This day saw over 600 Kestrels and 300 Merlins, among others.)  Anyway, here are a few shots from that day, it was a blast!

Blue Jay--not an easy bird to catch in flight. There was a flight of about 500 this day.
