For the Birds

If you happen to be flying USAirways this month, check out USAirways Magazine for my article about birding in New Jersey. Or check it out online here (scroll down to "For the Birds." A sample:

"It’s a long flight from the Arctic tundra to South America, so it’s no surprise that tens of thousands of birds make a rest stop during their annual migration. What people probably don’t know is that the avian stopover of choice is New Jersey or that the World Series of Birding takes place in the Garden State every year."

I listed Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, The Wetlands Institute and Cape May Point State Park (pictured) as South Jersey Shore spots to check out what's flying high in the sky.

You might want to check out Scott Weidensaul's Of a Feather: A Brief History of American Birdingbefore going -- and not just because he calls Cape May one of the best spots in the world to go birding. It's a fun read -- check out my review here.

And if you're really into birding, that World Series of Birding is on May 10. More info here.

Happy Birding!
