Cape May Rare Bird Alert - 10/30/1994
You have reached the Cape May Birding Hotline Update for Sunday, Oct. 30 1994 at 10 am.

A BELL'S VIREO was seen by multiple observers today at Higbee Beach. The bird was feeding actively and very Kinglet-like; it was seen in the northwest corner of the west field at Higbee, that is, just down the trail from the parking lot where everybody stops to watch migrants. As you go down the trail, it bends to the right; stop there; the bird was feeding in that protected area.

[Remainder of the tape is a repeat of the Oct. 27 edition. This appears to be the 3d well-documented state record. --LL]
