Workshop or Birding Break?

Birding Breaks are short birdwatching vacations, but with a learning element. Our Birding Breaks offer you much more than a basic walk; our leaders are all selected as being experts in their field and, though the accent will be on watching birds and having fun, there will also be a teaching element to these trips.  Weather permitting, most or all of your time will be spent out in the field.  Participant to leader ration on Birding Breaks is 12:1 or better. 

Workshops take the teaching element one step further.  While most of your time will still be spent in the field, Cape May Workshops generally contain a greater indoor element than Birding Breaks, with a classroom session that allows plenty of time for theory, to complement the practice in the field.  Leaders are all experts in their subjects, but workshops are pitched at a level that makes them easy to understand.  Participant to leader ratio on Workshops is 10:1 or better.
