If so, it's only thirty minutes away, so I might as well check it out! Would the 17th be too late? I have school off that day, so I am sure it will be less crowded than as if it was a weekend.

However, IMO strictly for Raptors, I still like Hawk Mountain better. The platform at Cape May is only a few feet above the ground and the Raptors are so high sometimes that you can not see any fieldmarks and have to rely on other things. At the North Lookout @ Hawk Mountain you are at 1500 ft and very often the Raptors are passing by actually beneath you, which affords spectacular looks as they move on by the side or the ridge. Of course many birds can still be waaay up there. Also I have had many raptors come in to "attack" the plastic GHO they have up there as they are passing over.
