Cape May Autumn Birding Festival, October 24 - 26!
Cape May is one of the most famous birding destinations in the US. And October may be the most exciting month of all to watch birds there. It's hawk migration! Cape May lies at the southernmost tip of New Jersey, on a peninsula that divides Delaware Bay from the Atlantic Ocean. Because most birds prefer to migrate over land rather than open water, the peninsula funnels southbound birds, sometimes in astonishing numbers. In the autumn of 2010, Cape May Bird Observatory counted more than 47,000 migrating hawks - including Red-shouldered Hawks, like this one. New Jersey Audubon sponsors the festival.

Seattle's elected leaders can hardly describe the proposed preschool pilot program at the heart of Proposition 1B without using the phrase "high-quality."
City education officials frequently invoke these words when speaking about their desire to pass a four-year, $58 million property tax hike to not only cover preschool tuition for as many as 2,000 low-income kids, but to ensure these children receive the greatest possible benefit from the program.
But amid a broader debate over whether voters ought to choose the city's plan over a competing childcare initiative, Proposition 1A, a smaller debate has roiled among early educators: What exactly constitutes "high-quality" preschool?
Where should a transgender student in a public school use the restroom? In which locker room should the student shower or change clothes? And how should a teacher refer to a student: as a he, a she, or neither?
