The Avalon Seawatch, a count of migrating seabirds, is conducted on the beach between 8th and 9th Streets, Avalon, NJ. This location was selected because the northern tip of Avalon extends a mile farther out into the ocean than the coastline to the north. Southbound seabirds that are following the coastline pass very close to this beachfront. The migration of seabirds along the coast of New Jersey is spectacular, and an average of almost 800,000 seabirds are counted at the Avalon Seawatch annually. In some years the count approaches one million birds. As remarkable as those numbers are, the bulk of this flight is extremely contracted. In most years about 70 percent of all the migrant seabirds pass in five weeks (from about October 7 to November 14). Varieties can and do show up at any time, and some very unexpected species have chosen to fly by the Avalon Seawatch during the past 19 years.

Along New Jersey's coast, a pathway atop a concrete sea wall provides a popular place for North Wildwood residents and visitors to enjoy ocean views. Beginning near 2nd Avenue and John F. Kennedy Boulevard on the seaward side of the city, the route traces the Hereford Inlet. Along the way, a worthwhile side excursion is a visit to the Hereford Inlet Lighthouse and in season, its surrounding gardens. At the southern end of the trail, you can also easily access the nearby Wildwood Boardwalk, a popular attraction to experience when closed up and silent.
