Coming Up: GULLS SIMPLIFIED with Michael O'Brien - March 4

From the brown and mottled to the clean and gray, you either love gulls or you don't. Whatever camp you're in, join Michael O'Brien on this fun Cape May School of Birding Workshop. You'll spend the morning in the field learning the easy way to separate the four common winter gulls and sifting flocks of gulls for something rare - perhaps an Iceland Gull or other species. We'll also cut through the fancy terminology around age and molt. After lunch, we'll head indoors for a review of gull plumages, aging, and rarer species.

Sign up today!

We now have online registration available through our website for all our preregistration programs, including the School of Birding workshops - CMBO Program Registration. You may also reserve your spot by calling the Program Registrar at (609) 400-3864 or by email at New Jersey Audubon and Cape May Bird Observatory members receive a 25% savings on all preregistration programs.
