Gulls Simplified

March 6 @ 8:00 am - 4:30 pm
Cape May Point State Park Hawkwatch Platform Light House Avenue
Cape May Point, NJ 08212 United States
+ Google Map
$90.00 - $120.00

Join Michael O’Brien to learn the easy way to separate the four common winter gulls and practice sifting flocks of gulls for something rare. Gulls are an interesting lot; as a group they can be found on every continent around the world, yet there is a tendency for them to be, well, a little ‘samey’! In this workshop, we aim to spend time focusing on the four regular, wintering species in Cape May - Herring, Great Black-backed, Ring-billed and Bonaparte’s; in the process, we will practice “sifting flocks” for rarer gulls. Perhaps we’ll see an Iceland Gull or other unusual species, or perhaps the season’s first Laughing Gull will wend its way northward past us. As well as considering identification, we’ll also help to demystify the fancy terminology surrounding age, plumage and condition of molt, useful considerations when working through a seemingly bewildering group. We don’t pre-set an itinerary, but will explore those parts of Cape May County that regularly hold good numbers of gulls, such as Cape May Point, Cape May Harbor and the Cape May Ferry Terminal area. Final location decisions will be made by the leader, based on local knowledge and conditions at the time. We may walk up to 1.5 miles, over generally level, sometimes muddy or sandy terrain.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Due to our Covid-19 guidelines (see below), there will be no sharing of equipment including binoculars or spotting scopes. Binoculars WILL NOT be available for loan from the leaders. Thank you for your understanding.
