Located along the Atlantic Flyway, Central Park welcomes more than 270 bird species each year. Learn the basics of bird identification while exploring the North Woods, the largest woodland landscape in the Park. Along with beautiful arches and peaceful waterfalls, the North Woods provides 40 acres of rare habitat in the middle of New York City, making it an important stopover for birds during spring migration. How many can you spot on this tour? Bring your own binoculars or borrow a pair from our tour guides.
