Rarity Roundup

November 14 @ 7:00 am - 12:30 pm
Cape May Point State Park Hawkwatch Platform Light House Avenue
Cape May Point, NJ 08212 United States
+ Google Map

Mid-November is one of the best times to look for vagrants. Join Program Director Melissa Roach in rounding up these rarities! PREREGISTRATION REQUIRED (walk-ups will not be permitted). Cape May is well known for the sheer number of birds that migrate through each fall, but did you know it’s also a great place to find rare species? Mid-November is one of the best times to look for vagrants: landbird migration is still ongoing, and rarities often show up and stick around for days or even weeks. Join us on this Special Field Trip as we try to track down as many rarities as possible. We might seek “stake-out” birds (birds previously found and staying in the same area), and we’ll also search local hotspots to find our own! Late fall 2020 has featured many irruptive landbirds including Evening Grosbeaks, and we’ll seek these out as they remain available. Through the day, we’ll round up as many rarities as possible around the tip of the Cape May peninsula. Because of the inherent dynamic nature of birding, we do not pre-set an exact itinerary but will visit those parts of Cape May County that regularly hold good numbers of seabirds during November. Final location decisions will be made by the leader based on local knowledge and conditions at the time. COST: $24 members, $32 nonmembers. Interested in becoming a member?
