All,

Please pardon if this is not an appropriate post. Please feel free to remove, it's simply meant to be an informative post..  Laura having gone to UVM and in fact started the focus of her bird/education career with Green Mountain Audubon it seemed fitting to post on VT Birds.

So, below is a copy of a press release announcing the launch of the New Jersey Audubon/ Cape May Bird Observatory's new, dynamic website www.BirdCapeMay.org which went live on 7/13/07.

Pleas stop into the Northwood Center to say hello if you find yourself birding Cape May.

CAPE MAY, New Jersey, July 13, 2007 

 

 

The New Jersey Audubon Society's Cape May Bird Observatory proudly announces the launch of its new virtual website BirdCapeMay.org  ( www.birdcapemay.org).



BirdCapeMay.org is an on-line tool for birders, nature enthusiasts, and visitors to Cape May.  Part of the websites virtual nature comes from weekly and monthly articles found in the Tigrina Times On-line Magazine by world renowned experts.  Articles include Field Identification and Photo Quiz by Michael O'Brien, Bird Droppings by Pete Dunne, Book Reviews by Mark Garland, Migrants & Residents Interviews by Rick Radis, and Birding Fieldcraft by Don Freiday. 



Weather guru Paul Lehman will also be making frequent contributions and updates to the Birding Forecast which will bring visitors up-to-date information on weather systems and migration patterns across the United States.   Focusing on his home town of Cape May and the surrounding states, updates will be made "real-time" using simulated maps along with weather primer articles on how to improve your weather watching skills.



Acclaimed photographers Kevin Karlson, a Cape May County resident, and Lloyd Spitalnik of NYC, are heading up the Photo Gallery that is truly a "visual Cape May" and a definite "must see".   The gallery will astound, fascinate, and delight viewers with images that will bring you to your knees.  Featuring eight gallery categories including four seasons, rarities, and scenes from the Cape May area along with a highlight photographer of the month; this section is destined to be one you will bookmark and return to again and again! 



CMBO Staff will be logging daily sightings on "View from the Cape" where viewers can access detailed accounts of what is being seen and where, as well as notes on rarities and vagrant species - an integral part of the Cape May experience.  A Naturalist's Calendar will keep you up to date with historical sightings, what you may expect to see while you are here visiting.  Additionally, the programs and events that CMBO offers year-round will be included 



Mentors and Young Birders have their own sections under Take A Kid Birding!®, an initiative designed to promote mentoring and fostering a sense of stewardship with the natural world.   Featuring articles, educational resources, quizzes, and information on the Cape May experience from the view of young birders themselves; including a question and answer board for budding young naturalists where anyone can "ask the experts."  Tips and tools for getting out and enjoying nature more will also be provided.



     "There are few birding locations this side of the Big Bang that are better known than Cape May, New Jersey, and its fame is not accidental.   Birders everywhere celebrate its migratory fallouts, species diversity, great migratory concentrations, the skill level of the local birding community, and the friendliness local birders accord visitors. 

     In fact, it sometimes seems that the world is divided into two categories: those who have birded Cape May and those who aspire to bird Cape May.  This website is designed to narrow the gap.   Its purpose is to bring the Cape May birding experience to you, right now, in a way that is as engaging, informative, and as friendly as birding Cape May in person."   - Pete Dunne, CMBO Director



BirdCapeMay.org is a website created for the viewer.  Whether someone visits Cape May yearly, is planning a trip from England and needs some essential tools, or is sipping tea in a café in San Francisco, birding Cape May has never been easier.  You don't even need to be here to enjoy Cape May year-round.  To paraphrase Pete Dunne, you bring the interest, we'll supply the reality. 



Founded in 1976 by the New Jersey Audubon Society, the Cape May Bird Observatory (CMBO) is a leader in research, environmental education, bird conservation, and recreational birding activities. 



Our mission: to understand and instill appreciation of the needs of resident and migrating birds so that human ambitions do not undermine them. Funded almost entirely by the support of an international membership, two facilities serve our members' needs and interests. 



 The New Jersey Audubon Society (NJAS) is a privately supported, not-for profit, statewide membership organization. Founded in 1897, and one of the oldest independent Audubon societies, NJAS has no affiliation with the National Audubon Society.
