Rutgers team completes 3rd World Series of Birding

16 05 2011

The Scarlet Knight-Herons, a team of former Rutgers graduate students, finished their 3rd WSB on Saturday.  The event challenges birders to identify as many species as possible within a 24-hour period within the borders of NJ.  This year, the Knight-Herons also confined themselves to Cape Island (the area south of the Cape May Canal) and to bicycles!  That’s right – no motor vehicles were used by the team as they traversed over 43 miles in search of birds.

Read a short review of their day at the official blog:
