On July 13, 2007 CMBO's new website, www.BirdCapeMay.org, was launched. Since then, BirdCapeMay.org has been visited by people in all 50 U.S. states and from 126 territories / countries around the globe!
In honor of BirdCapeMay.org's one year anniversary the home page has been updated to bear the emblematic Peregrine Falcon that has come to be synonymous with the words "Bird Cape May". A special thank you goes out to Kevin Karlson who captured this amazing image and for allowing us to use it for our website!
There are many excellent resources contained within the pages of this website and I am pleased that so many visitors return time and time again to check out:
- View from the Cape: Recent Sightings
- eBird Google Gadget Rarity Sightings
- Mid-Atlantic Birding Forecast
- Tigrina Times online magazine and Photo Quiz
- Photo Gallery and the Photographer of the Month
- Young Birder's Photo Quiz
- FeatherEdge Optics online store
BirdCapeMay.org also provides useful information on CMBO's daily walks, programs, Cape May School of Birding workshops, and NJAS annual events such as the World Series of Birding and the Autumn Weekend. Along with tools for spending a day (or two or three or...) in Cape May including a Naturalist Calendar, Places to Eat, Shop, Stay & Play, and local Birding Maps and Checklists.
As we head into Autumn and another full season of migration along the Atlantic seaboard be sure to check in with the daily news and counts from the Hawk Watch, Sea Watch, Morning Flight, and Monarch Monitoring Project under View from the Field: Seasonal Research. We also have a few new surprises in store for you this autumn so be sure to come back and visit BirdCapeMay.org often!
It is with heartfelt thanks and gratitude that I congratulate all of the contributors and visitors, like you, for making BirdCapeMay.org a resounding success.
