Cape May Point
Cape May, New Jersey

The Black-throated Green Warbler breeds in northeastern North America and migrates east of the Mississippi river to wintering grounds in Central and South America. "Yellow face, with olive-green crown and ear patches. Green mantle. Two white bars on each wing. Black chin, throat, and breast, with bold streaks on the flanks."

In 2013 (October 6-12), I traveled to southern New Jersey for "Cape May Magic" an American Birding Association workshop conducted by Mark Garland and Pat & Clay Sutton . It was a wonderful week of birding and learning about birds, although it was rainy and very windy. The storm, a nor'easter (a cyclonic storm that moves along the east coast of North America. It’s called “nor’easter” because the winds over coastal areas blow from a northeasterly direction) , lasted most of the week. As a result, the conditions were generally very challenging for bird photography. Despite the weather, I enjoyed it so much that I spent another five days there in mid-October 2014. Due to its location at the end of a peninsula bordered by Delaware Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, Cape May , New Jersey is a migrant trap and one of the top birding destinations in North America.
