Bird Buzz

Where do we find best spring birding?

Spring means renewal and for birders the excitement of a flood of northbound avian migrants. It's a thrill everywhere, but in particular at places where birds concentrate the most, providing unequalled opportunities for seeing not only many species but big numbers of individuals.

Best known among such sites in the eastern half of North America are Canada's Point Pelee (see another of our Bird Buzzes), several spots along the Gulf Coast (such as High Island, visited on our Texas Coast Migration Spectacle tours), and of course New Jersey's famous Cape May (shown in participant Tatiana Neumann's photo here, with guide Tom Johnson putting something good in the scope for our 2016 group).

Our upcoming Spring in Cape May tour, which runs May 14-20, 2017 with Tom Johnson and Doug Gochfeld as guides, has just three spaces available. Under Tom and Doug's leadership (they know the Cape May area like the backs of their hands), it's bound to be a spring birding extravaganza. You can read all about this tour on our SPRING IN CAPE MAY page.

Don't forget also to view our 2016 illustrated triplist or 2015 illustrated triplist for a great taste of the tour.
