Archosaur field trip to the beaches of southern New Jersey

Let me get to my lesson: I have a great bunch of kids but a south Jersey trip is a 2 day affair. We did Forsythe, then Cape May State Park and over to Stone Harbor/Avalon but no stopping. I think the future, we'll do Forsythe then pine woods (Bellplain?) then find a place near Cape May and relax downtown.  Then the next day do birding in Cape May, the meadows (skipped), Stone Harbor (skipped). 

Now the birds...

Caspian Tern - although royals are the ones with the white forehead, this has a heavy red bill and frosty wings
