September 02, 2011

SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. —
The Potomac Valley Audubon Society is sponsoring a hawk-watching trip to Cape May, N.J., the weekend of Friday, Oct. 14, through Sunday, Oct. 16.

Anyone with an interest is welcome to participate and there will be no fee. But participants must furnish their own transportation and arrange for their own accommodations.

The trip will be led by local birder Sandy Sagalkin, and it will focus on several hawk-watching sites.

Those who participate will also be able to take advantage of a variety of free educational opportunities offered by the Cape May Bird Observatory and the New Jersey Audubon Society. Their offerings include such events as a Hawk identification workshop for beginners, a Hawk-banding demonstration, a monarch-tagging demonstration and bird walks that are open to the public.

The Cape May Bird Observatory website (www.birdcapemay.org) contains a list of Cape May hotels and motels which offer discounts to birders who are members of the Observatory.

Those who wish to participate should register by calling Sagalkin at 240-291-6465. For more information, email monsansagalkin@myactv.net.
