Tuesday Morning Fall Bird Walks

Tuesdays, September 3–October 22, 2013

Fall Lunchtime Bird Walks

Observe the exciting fall migration of birds in Central Park with ornithologists Paul Sweet (Tuesdays and Fridays) and Joseph DiCostanzo (Wednesdays and Thursdays). Learn how to use field marks, habitat, and behavior as aids to identification of “confusing fall warblers,” thrushes, sparrows, and raptors, as they pass through New York City en route to their winter homes. Birder field observation cards included. 

 

 

A note about bird walks: Be sure to bring a pair of binoculars and wear comfortable shoes. Please note, these walks are over an hour long with steps, slopes, and wood-chip paths. 

Walks start across from the Museum on the northeast corner of Central Park West and 77th Street. Walks are limited to 15 people per series. For more information, call the AMNH Bird Walk Hotline at 212-313-7579.
