It's spring bird migration... Are you ready for some urban birding?!
When avid birder Heather Wolf moved from tropical Florida to an apartment near Brooklyn Bridge Park, she wondered how many species she might see there, and soon came to a surprising realization: not only is the park 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 us on the green roof as Brooklyn birder and author Heather Wolf shares tips for birding in Brooklyn and talks about her book Birding at the Bridge: In Search of Every Bird on the Brooklyn Waterfront.
Books will be available for purchase & signing at the event!
Green roof tour will precede lecture. Light refreshments will be served.
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.
