Higbee Beach

West End of New England Road
Cape May, NJ 08204

In September and October, birds on their southward migration are funneled down the Cape May peninsula, directly into Higbee Beach WMA. In spring, when birds are northbound, Higbee is the first landfall after crossing the Delaware Bay, so migrants will often stop to rest and feed. The area consists of a series of fields, hedgerows, and deciduous and dune forest. Birding is great year round, and best from April through November.
