Friday, January 27, 2017  Seven Mile Island’s Silent Parade

Presented by: Allison Anholt, Research Scientist, The Wetlands Institute

An impressive migration of waterbirds occurs every fall along Seven Mile Island and is documented by the Cape May Bird Observatory’s Avalon Seawatch. We will discuss the numbers of waterbirds passing Seven Mile Island, which in some years exceeds one million, the types of birds that make up this tremendous movement, and how to identify them for yourselves from land.
