Come to Cape May and Enjoy the Word Series of Birding this Year May 10th.
What is the World Series of Birding?
It’s a game, it’s a marathon, it’s a challenge, it’s a heck of a lot of fun! This year on May 10, 2014 and normally on the 2nd, or occasionally 3rd, Saturday of May – rain or shine. Mark your calendars and start planning your strategy.
Many great birders have raised glasses in this event. The first official World Series of Birding began at midnight on May 19, 1984, when just thirteen teams set out on a 24-hour treasure hunt. Their mission was to tally as many species of birds by sight or sound. Their objective was to raise money for their favorite environmental cause, and to focus worldwide attention upon the habitat needs of migrating birds.
They succeeded beyond anyone’s dreams. Today there are thousands of participants in the event and the event has grown into several categories and ways to play.
Level I – Competing Teams who vie for awards in several categories
Level II – Non-competing
Level III – Youth Challenge for ages 6-18 within their respective youth groups
Level IV – Senior Challenge for ages 60 and over
When is it?
This year on May 10, 2014 and normally on the 2nd, or occasionally 3rd, Saturday of May – rain or shine. Mark your calendars and start planning your strategy.
