The beauty, solace, and sense of belonging to a much bigger world outside of our own is both appealing and good for the soul — birding can provide that and more.
Whether you are in the suburbs, countryside or in urban areas, there are many species of birds to be admired, with more than 200 regularly visiting New York City each year. Long-time birders, experienced trip leaders and authors of Birdwatching in New York City and on Long Island, Deborah Rivel and Kellye Rosenheim, will show you the basics of bird identification, bird behavior and cover some of the best places to find them during this lecture. For the beginning birder, this will be a great opportunity to learn a new skill and tips from the experts.
For those looking to test their newly acquired skills or to join like-minds for an afternoon in nature, Rivel and Rosenheim will be leading a birdwatching walk in Central Park as a separate follow up event. Please note, the tour includes walking on moderate hills. Attendees are strongly encouraged to bring binoculars for the full experience.
