A couple of lists from CMBO walks

The bottom list is from CMBO Associate Naturalist Steve Weis from Friday's "George Myers" Higbee walk.  While not the birdiest day Cape May has ever seen, it looks like the walk produced some good sightings and I am sure a good tiem was had by all who participated. 

The first list below is from last evenings Meadows walk, held every Friday through October.  An evening walk at the TNC Cape May Migratory Bird Refuge (Meadows) is not to be missed.  In fact, if you are unable to make a Friday walk, web guru, Laura Guerard, will be leading an evening walk on Wednesdays at this location in September and October.  Check out that Naturalist Calendar for more information on these and other walks.  Remember, in the fall CMBO has at least one walk at day.  Many time there are two to three walks, plus School of Birding Workshops and other preregistration programs.  Also, starting in September we will have Monarch tagging demos and Seabird & Hawk ID min-workshops.  Again, check out the Naturalist Calendar for dates and times.  Or, you could stop into either CMBO center and pick up a Kestral Express, the official CMBO program publication.

Looking forward to seeing you in the fall!
