Birding in Green-Wood Cemetery

Saturday, October 17, 2015


Founded in 1838, Green-Wood Cemetery covers more than 475 acres and is one of the largest open spaces in New York City. This picturesque National Historic Landmark, with its commanding views of New York Harbor, is noted as a great birding location. In mid-October, with fall foliage in full color, many migrant birds find sanctuary among the trees, shrubs, and graves of the cemetery. The avian specialty of the Green-Wood is the colony of Monk Parakeets that have lived for many years in the gatehouse.
