Cape May has a long history of incredible raptor movements, with NJ Audubon’s Cape May Bird Observatory conducting the 43rd Fall Count at this crossroads of migration. This presentation will highlight the species and factors involved in this annual event, including records counts for Bald Eagle and American Kestrel among the 50,000+ raptors tallied in Fall 2018.
Brett is the Program Director of New Jersey Audubon’s Cape May Bird Observatory. He has been studying and enjoying birds and nature for over 35 years. His passion for birds and their conservation has led to his involvement in many research and educational projects, specializing in migration and distribution patterns. These endeavors have taken him from the mountains of New Mexico to the beaches of New Jersey, including a stint (no pun intended) as the hawk watch counter at Cape May in 1990. He looks forward to sharing the wonders of birds and nature with you!
