First, a biggie. The photo is from Cape May, New Jersey. The photo was taken in September.

The second hint is that there appear to be 13 birds in the photo. Let’s number them like this:

Second row: Bird 4.
Third row, left to right: Birds 5 and 6.
Fourth row, left to right: Birds 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12.
Bottom row: Bird 13.
