Take the “poor man’s pelagic” across Delaware Bay aboard the Cape May-Lewes Ferry at a time of year when hundreds of Northern Gannets (up close and personal),  Common and Red-throated Loons, cormorants, gulls, terns, shorebirds, scoters, and other ducks concentrate in the bay. We often see Ospreys arriving after their long journey from South America, and a Bald Eagle or two are always possible. This CMBO Special Field Trip is a unique way to experience these seabirds and the beauty of a Delaware Bay crossing. Join CMBO Naturalists at the Cape May Ferry landing for a half hour of birding from the landing (we've had Black-headed Gull here in the past). Ride the 1:00 boat to Delaware and return on the 2:45, arriving back in North Cape May shortly after 4 PM. The round-trip ferry fee is included in the field trip price, and as we will be travelling as foot passengers, you can park free of charge in the adjacent lot. PHOTO I.D. WILL BE REQUIRED.
