Here’s your opportunity to learn more about raptors!  John Shafer will share some of his photos of raptors, including photos in different stages of development, the better to help you identify, age, and sex these fascinating, uniquely adapted birds.  He’ll also share personal stories, research, and current theories on habitat and behavior to enhance your appreciation for these birds in the wild

John Shafer is a Board Member with the Cape May Raptor Banding Project, and has been volunteering with the Project for 25 years.  He brings that wealth of experience to his talks as a natural history interpreter and field trip leader.

This will also be our Annual Membership meeting, and we will be conducting elections for Officers and Board of Directors.  We will also be announcing Birdathon prize winners!
