Roseate spoonbills are usually found in Florida and Texas. As both of those states have been hit with massive hurricanes, the birds are fleeing to safer locations, which is leading to birds being spotted in New Jersey.

Experts believe more species may follow the spoonbill and wood storks that have been seen near Cape May and a white-winged tern that turned up in Pennsylvania.

Brett Ewald, program director at the New Jersey Audubon's Cape May Bird Observatory, told he began receiving reports of sightings of the roseate spoonbill last week. He said he expects seeing more birds generally found in Carolinas, Georgia, Florida and the deep South that have been displaced by the storms in this region in the coming weeks.
