Winter Coastal Marsh Raptor Survey

Cape May Bird Observatory has established a long term survey of raptors wintering in the coastal marshes of southern New Jersey. Volunteer observers conduct point counts on designated weekend evenings (once in mid-January and again in mid-February) at selected points in Cape May, Cumberland, Salem and Atlantic counties. 360 degree scans with binoculars and/or telescopes are conducted every fifteen minutes from one hour before sunset to one-half hour after sunset. 

Exact methods for conducting the survey are below, as well as the form for recording observations.
