 Three great days birding in Cape May. I particularly loved the Laughing gulls; they don’t call them “laughing” for nothing. They were everywhere and in breeding plumage.

The mother lode rookery at Heislerville; it is so large that it will not fit in one frame. The Herons appear to occupy the bottom, the Cormorants the top, and the Egrets the middle.
