Have Fun Helping Us Count!!! The Great Backyard Bird Count - February 17

Come one, come all - and help us count some birds!!! CMBO is pleased to once again host a Great Backyard Bird Count Event - taking place this Saturday, February 17th at the Northwood Center in Cape May Point (701 East Lake Dr.). Join Pete Dunne and Associate Naturalist on hourly "walks" - counting all the birds we see at the feeders, trails behind the building, and on Lake Lily across the street. Counts are scheduled for 10 am, 11 am, 1 pm, 2 pm, and 3 pm, but show up any time and take part. Let's see who can come up with the most species or the most individuals of a certain species - all of our counts will be submitted to the official online count. A great chance to learn more about wintering birds. Most of all, lets' have some fun!!

TECHNIQUES OF FIELD OBSERVATION with Michael O'Brien - February 17

Sharpen your field skills in the workshop that every birder wishes they'd taken. Binoculars show you the bird. Field guides identify the bird.  But how many times have you studied a bird, only to discover that all of the information you gathered has evaporated by the time you get to the field guide, or that the one field mark you need to distinguish one from another was the one thing you failed to note? Join expert birder Michael O'Brien on this in-depth School of Birding Workshop - it will teach you how to look, record and recall, and most importantly, how to bird like an expert. Preregistration required.
