Cape May Fall Festival

October 18 - October 21
Cape May Fall Festival, Cape May, NJ United States + Google Map

NJ Audubon’s Fall Festival is the longest running birding festival in the country. New Jersey Audubon’s Cape May Bird Observatory has its finger on the pulse of fall migration and you are invited to be a part of it. Four official migratory counts take place during the fall: the Monarch Monitoring Project, the Avalon Seawatch, the Morning Flight Songbird Count, and of course the celebrated Cape May Hawkwatch. There is no better way to immerse yourself in the storied birding experience that is Cape May than attending this festival.  We are not the only ones that think Cape May is the best place for birding, see what National Geographic has to say National Geographic lists Cape May as a World’s Best destination for birding Here is what they say: The narrow peninsula at Cape May acts as a bird funnel, bringing in songbirds during their spring and fall migrations. At dawn on a good day, legendary Higbee Beach offers front-row seats to a feathered fashion show: A steady procession flies by, each bird intent on finding a place to rest as it encounters the natural barrier of Delaware Bay. With a little luck, you can see 20 species of warblers, each in its own colorful costume. REGISTER TODAY - space is limited

Pete Dunne co-wrote the book that is the title of this workshop, and the only thing he enjoys more than watching hawks is imparting the knowledge he has accumulated during his 15,000 hawk watching hours.
