It is our 45th year!!


There is no place like Cape May New Jersey for springtime birding.  It is considered one of the top 10 birding destinations in the world by National Geographic.  We time our festival to coincide with the height of migration which is why when you join our festival you will be in the heart of the birding action.

Enjoy Field Trips, boat trips, trolley trips and great indoor programs await you. Whether it’s your first time or you just can’t resist coming back, you will leave this festival a better birder with a heightened passion for birding and conservation.
