Cape May's Hot Birds: Brown-headed Nuthatch

Where: Cape and Lincoln Avenues, Cape May Point. In the pines along the dunes.

When: Saturday, July 23. Seen sporadically all day. Continued on the 24th. Not seen on the 25th.

What: Brown-headed Nuthatch feeding in the pine trees along the dunes.

Why is it hot? There are no modern records of this species for the state of New Jersey.

More details: Found by Richard Crossley and observed by many. Look for it especially in the pine trees along the dune at the end of Cape Ave where it meets the beach. Listen for a squeaky note, somewhat like a small dog toy. It is possible that it may stay for awhile. This bird can be found just across the bay at Cape Henlopen, Delaware and south.
