Red Admiral


Jack Miller and TJ Jannsch

Cape May h\Hawk Watch
Cape May County, NJ

Met up with Jack Connor for a big time in the Cape. By 7:45 the monarchs were flying and flew past us at at least 15-20 per hour until we left at 12:30. It was hard to pay attention to them as we were distracted by a golden eagle, bald eagles, harriers, red-tails, red-shouldereds, broad-winged hawks, Coopers, sharp-shins, and many other wonderful birds.

  • Red Admiral 2
  • Common Buckeye 2
  • Monarch 80+
