Cory’s Shearwater – lifebird#292

Time ticks against my race to 300 – July 4th brought another bonus bird when I “got” lifebird #292. Cory’s Shearwater! I never would have expected this bird would make the top 300- yet, there they were, 2 beautiful birds just floating in the waters off Cape May! As the Whale Watch boat passed them, they took off in flight, remaining close enough to us for me to photograph and get a positive ID confirmation from Sam Galick. (thanks Sam!)

As I approach my 300 milestone, the excitement builds, much like the days before Christmas. Who knows what surprises are circling the skies (or hovering over the waters) around me!
