Winter Birding in Cape May
Registration not required.
Birding in the winter can be very rewarding and there are several Citizen Science projects to take part in, such as the Christmas Bird Counts and Great Backyard Bird Count, and the more formal Winter Raptor Survey and Ipswich Sparrow Survey conducted by the Cape May Bird Observatory. This presentation will highlight the species present at this time of year and ways you can enjoy and participate in efforts to study and understand the birds around us!
Brett is the Program Director of New Jersey Audubon’s Cape May Bird Observatory. He has been studying and enjoying birds and nature for over 35 years. His passion for birds and their conservation has led to his involvement in many research and educational projects, specializing in migration and distribution patterns. These endeavors have taken him from the mountains of New Mexico to the beaches of New Jersey, including a stint (no pun intended) as the hawk watch counter at Cape May in 1990. He looks forward to sharing the wonders of birds and nature with you!
