Birds & Birding at Cape May
Start Time: 6:00 PM - : 7:30 PM
“Birds and Birding at Cape May” is a program based on the Suttons’ landmark book by the same name and is the in-depth result of their efforts over so many years documenting and protecting the migration and the hometown that they so love. Their program will share the storied history of birds and birding at Cape May, a place where bird studies in the Americas in part began. Expect a walk through the seasons, detailing major phenomena like the autumn raptor migration, the internationally-known spring shorebird gatherings, as well as the waterfowl, seabird, wader, owl, and songbird possibilities throughout the changing seasons.
