New Jersey (NJ) Audubon Cape May Bird Observatory
Situated along the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, the New Jersey (NJ) Audubon Cape May Bird Observatory provides an ideal location for bird and butterfly watching, especially during spring and fall migration. Cape May is a narrow peninsula with Delaware Bay to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east. The Cape May peninsula forms a bird funnel, directing migrating songbirds, hawks, and monarchs along the coastline during spring and fall migration.
Observatory staff and volunteers periodically share updates on monarch and bird migration happenings at Cape May.
