    Regarding comments above related to "life lists". We started seriously birding last November (Thank You Daughter and seeing "The Big Year"). We have been observing, feeding and enjoying birds for a long time. Our rules for a life list..If we had seen it and identified it over the years it does not count. So, A Gentoo Penguin, Blue Footed Booby or a Belted Kingfisher are not lifers per say...On the other hand a Golden Crowned Kinglet is, as well as those pesky warblers...
    Regarding Birders in general..They are the most sharing group of people I have ever encountered. Only one instance of snobbery amongst the hundreds who have guided and helped us.
    Do visit Cape May, anytime is good and the camaraderie is wonderful.
