Birding in Cape May and southern New Jersey during spring migration is legendary! With over 430 total species observed, and over 330 species seen this time of year, Cape May is home to some of the greatest avian biodiversity in the northeast. May in southern New Jersey offers an abundance of everything: migratory warblers in the shrubs and forests, birds of prey cruising overhead, and shorebirds along the beaches and backwaters. Wading birds and rails stalk the saltmarshes and nightjars sing through the night. Though less than a day’s drive from NBNC, Cape May is a whole new and exciting world of birds rarely if ever encountered in Vermont! Summer Tanager, Prothonotary Warbler, Red Knot and Yellow-breasted Chat are just the tip of the iceberg. And there’s always the possibility of a few rarities showing up in Cape May. Past trips have had Swainson’s Warbler, Curlew Sandpiper and Black-necked Stilt among other southern wanderers.
