This is an excellent program for birders of all level of skills. Mark was a wonderful group leader. Our weather conditions weren't the best, but Mark's flexibility, knowledge of the area and birds made this a great program. I came for the hawks and there were lots of them at this time of year. The hotel was quite nice and across from the beach, and the food was outstanding-best of any Road Scholar trip to date!

I am not a birder, but, thanks to the excellent leaders, I had a great time. I saw far more birds than I would have on my own because of the guides' ability to spot and identify them. I plan to go on other such programs.

This was my first Road Scholar trip. It was very enjoyable, well planned and smoothly executed. Everyone from the leaders to the experts to my fellow participants were interesting and enjoyable. It was a nice mixture of singles and couples, and a fun group of people. I'm looking forward to my next Road Scholar experience!

Excellent trip, much better than anticipated, with experienced and knowledgeable guides. Visited varied habitats for migrating song and shorebirds. I personally would have preferred a bit more time outside as you can't beat a learning experience with an experienced guide, cooperative birds, and a pair of binoculars. When we were in the field, there were no disappointments!

We have birded Cape May many times and enjoyed revisiting familiar locations with knowledgable leaders.

The birding was great; the leaders and trips planned were wonderful; the facility was fine and the food was more than adequate and a good quality. However, one entire afternoon was spent indoors on instruction. I realize that a big part of the program is education. I guess it's just not feasible to save that for a rainy day? (Luckly we had none of those!) Carol

Cape May is a great place for this easy-going trip with lots of birds and wildlife to be seen.
