What’s that Warbler?

September 19 @ 7:00 am - 4:00 pm
NJ United States

Fall warblers can be tricky to identify. Males are no longer singing, and most species have lost their colorful breeding plumage. Luckily, Cape May hosts a diverse array of warblers migrating south during the fall, and September is the best time to see as many different species as possible. CMBO’s Program Director, Melissa Roach, will lead you through Cape May hotspots in search of these little gems while teaching you how to ID them with confidence. We will go over differences in shape, plumage, behavior, and even work on call notes. 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 birds during September. 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. COST: $90 members, $120 nonmembers.   NEW JERSEY AUDUBON'S PROGRAM GUIDELINES: New Jersey Audubon field trips and programs adhere to CDC guidelines; leaders have the right to ask a participant to leave the program if someone is not adhering to these guidelines for the health and safety of all.
