It's the beginning of spring migration... Are you ready for some urban birding?!
When avid birder Heather Wolf moved from tropical Florida to NYC, she wondered how many species she might find here, and soon came to a surprising realization: not only is Brooklyn filled with an astonishing variety of birds, but the challenges that come with urban birding make them even more fun—and rewarding—to find.
Join Brooklyn birder and author Heather Wolf in Greenpoint, Brooklyn as we bird Greenpoint Avenue Bridge to First Calvary Cemetery! Heather will share her tips for birding in Brooklyn and beyond.
*Meet at Greenpoint Avenue Bridge on NE corner of Greenpoint Avenue and Kingsland Avenue
Heather Wolf is a Brooklyn-based birder who works for the Cornell Lab of Ornithology as a web developer on sites including eBird and Birds of North America. Her book Birding at the Bridge: In Search of Every Bird on the Brooklyn Waterfront documents her mini-quest to find and photograph as many birds as possible in Brooklyn Bridge Park, where she leads educational bird walks and inspires non-birders to discover birds in their neighborhoods. Heather’s photos are featured in “New York at Its Core” exhibit at the Museum of the City of New York and Brooklyn Bridge Park's Environmental Education Center Discovery Station. She blogs her photos at brooklynbridgebirds.com.
This event is made possible with generous support from the Greenpoint Community Environmental Fund and the Office of the New York State Attorney General and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.
