Things That go Seep in the Night!

October 4 @ 2:00 pm - October 5 @ 6:30 am
Cape May Cape May, NJ 08204 United States

Join Michael O'Brien for this special workshop (2 half days). Friday October 4: 2:00pm-4:30pm & 10pm-Midnight, Saturday October 5: 5:00am-6:30am Experience the cutting edge of birding! Birds don’t sing much in the fall - but they sure do call. Chip notes, flight notes, and critical listening are the primary subjects of this workshop, led by the man who wrote the book (well, maybe the CD-ROM) on flight calls. Includes optional nighttime listening for nocturnal migrants. Learn to dissect a single note determining whether it rises or falls and is clear or blurry. You will never listen the same way again.  This workshop is spread over two half-days to allow us to be in the field at the best time of day; it includes an indoor afternoon session, an evening session to study nocturnal migrants, followed by an early morning listening session the next day - the perfect way to learn the subject! Preregistration required.  Please register early – group size is limited. Cost: $90 members, $120 nonmembers.

Cape May with Everything on it

Cape May Cape May, NJ 08204 United States

Join Louise Zemaitis for this three-day workshop. Mid-October is the time the local birders wait for; the most massive fallouts of the season commonly occur NOW! Sparrows, kinglets, bluebirds, America Robin, Hermit Thrush, and literally who knows what else, since this week generally starts the season for vagrants in Cape May. It's also a great time for big raptors like buteos and Golden Eagle, while seabird flights pass Avalon and Cape May Point nearly every day. Preregistration required.  Please register early – group size is limited. Cost: $225 members, $300 nonmembers.

Cape May Cape May, NJ 08204 United States

Join Michael O'Brien for this two-day workshop celebrating the 'LBJs' (little brown jobs). Subtle and cryptic they might be; difficult to identify they are not, providing you have the right instructor, in the right place at the right time. A time when lots of sparrows and lots of species abound. Common species like Swamp, Field, Savannah and Chipping. Uncommon ones like Clay-colored, Vesper, Lincoln's, Nelson's and Saltmarsh. Learn the basics of size, shape and behavior first, then practice examining plumage patterns to discover how stunning sparrows can be. 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
