CMBO Cape May Point State Park Walk- 7/16/08

The report from today's CMBO Cape May point State Park walk is below. Visiting Cape May in the near future? Looking for a bird walk? Make sure that you check the Naturalist Calendar to see what walks are offered while you visit. For the rest of July and through August CMBO offers almost daily bird walks. In the fall we offer at least one bird walk a day. So you have the ability to bird with one of our knowledgeable Associate Naturalists or a CMBO staff member pretty much any time you are here.

If you are looking to get more in depth field study, try one of our School of Birding Workshops. These workshops are not just limited to birds either.

Looking to get out on the water but not up for the cost of a pelagic trip? Try one of the Back Bay Birding by Boat trips. Trust me, you won't be disappointed that you went on this trip. For one, how often do you really get to see the back bays? Two, shorebirds are moving so who knows what you will find. Three, it's just plain fun! Note that these are pre-registration.

"On the CMBO Cape May Point Walk we found the usual suspects and a few shore birds on the wing. Indigo Buntings were a little more quiet but we did manage to find and view a couple. Also one young pine warbler."
