Shorebirds with the Man Who Wrote the Book

August 19, 2020 @ 7:30 am - August 20, 2020 @ 4:00 pm
NJUnited States

With Michael O'Brien.  It is not surprising Houghton Mifflin's landmark The Shorebird Guide (2006) sprang from the brains and hands of three Cape May birders and authors.  Now you can experience some of the East Coast's best shorebirding while being guided by one of them.  Michael O'Brien is equal parts skilled birder and superb teacher.  Search storied locations like Bunker Pond, the South Cape May Meadows, Stone Harbor and Edwin B. Forsythe NWR for peeps, plovers and yellowlegs plus possible gems like phalaropes or godwits.  Over 25 plovers and sandpipers are in easy reach, with some species numbering in the thousands.  Learn to begin with size, shape, behavior and voice, and then move on to careful examination of plumage details, just as The Shorebird Guide teaches.  Preregistration required. Please register early - group size is limited. Cost: $150 members, $200 nonmembers REGISTER HERE For more information on all of CMBO’s walks and programs, please call 609-400-3868 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.
