Comments:
Windy, partly to mostly sunny, low 50s to low 60s. Includes observations made from the hawk watch platform, trails, beach, and the pavilion looking out over the beach. I was trying to maximize my limited time here, so I did not split up the observations. This was the first good birding of the day. I was over at Higbee Beach just prior, and there was light rain, and it was very windy. I didn't see much, so I decided to try out the other side of the cape. I'm glad I did.
