Birding on the Barrier Islands

November 13 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Stone Harbor Point, South End, 2nd Ave
Stone Harbor, NJ 08247 United States

Join Chris Marks and CMBO Naturalists, as we explore Stone Harbor Point and nearby Nummy Island! PREREGISTRATION REQUIRED (walk-ups will not be permitted). Join us as we explore some of the iconic barrier islands in Cape May County. These long and narrow land strips are teeming with a variety of birds. For this trip, we’ll spend the majority of our time on Seven Mile Island, home to the boroughs of Stone Harbor and Avalon as well as amazing ocean views, dunes, and marshes. As we walk the beach at Stone Harbor Point, we’ll look for wintering shorebirds, gulls, and sparrows. The Avalon jetty is a great spot to try for winter goodies such as Great Cormorant and Purple Sandpiper as well as migrating scoters, loons, and other waterfowl. We may also try for salty sparrows such as Nelson’s and Saltmarsh Sparrow on Nummy Island. We do not set a firm daily schedule in advance, leaving us flexible to maximize birding opportunities, taking advantage of weather conditions, tides, and recent bird sightings. We will walk up to 2 miles on sand and boardwalk. COST: $15 members, $20 nonmembers. Interested in becoming a member? Please click on the following link to learn more or join: Become a Member today!
