Season at the Point
By

Rating
Cape May Point, New Jersey, is home to a natural phenomenon of stunning proportions. Each autumn millions of migrating birds converge here on their annual flight to wintering grounds as far away as Brazil and Peru. Season at the Point, the rich and telling story of the birds and birders of Cape May, evokes the sense of mystery and excitement that pervades the Cape as birders gather to count owls by the hundreds, hawks by the tens of thousands, and shorebirds and songbirds by the hundreds of thousands.

Reviews

The season is fall, the players are counters and banders and the field is the sky at Cape May. Birders know that this area at the southernmost tip of New Jersey is a natural funnel for tens of thousands of migrating raptors and shorebirds. Now even non-birders can enjoy a fall migration from the Cape in this movable feast of amateur field ornithology--observing mostly hawks and falcons--captured by Connor ( The Complete Birder ) in hundreds of crisp moments of individual discovery. Exceptions to the focus on raptors include the last known sighting of the Bachman's warbler, North America's rarest songbird. This is hunkered-down-in-the-blind reporting from a fine naturalist writer who seems able to make a sunset linger while he and his readers strain to see the last silhouetted shape in the winter sky at the Point.
