Cape May Spring Festival
There is no place like Cape May New Jersey for springtime birding and we are going to bring it to you….again!!
We’ve put together a phenomenal mix of live streaming from migration hotspots such as Belleplain State Forest, The Nature Conservancy’s South Cape May Meadows, and Garrett Family Preserve. Add to that presentations from Cape May’s finest ranging from Scott Whittle’s warbler identification to taking a trip along the Delaware Bayshore (i.e. “shorebird alley”) with Kevin Karlson and Glen Davis.
Check out our featured/keynote speakers! Mark Garland speaks Friday on Cape May and pandemic birding. On Saturday, Kelly Goodale of the US Fish and Wildlife Service brings us the story of Hawaii’s favorite bird, Wisdom the Laysan Albatross, originally banded on the island atoll of Midway by Chandler Robbins in 1956. At 69+ years of age, Wisdom is the oldest known banded wild bird, and is still returning to Midway annually to raise a chick. The stories she could tell…
At Cape May, you never know what’s coming over the horizon. NJ Audubon’s Cape May Spring Festival will be the next best thing to being there!
