Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced birdwatcher, spring migration is an exciting time to be out observing birds in the parks.

Earn a curiosity stamp while you learn how to use binoculars and explore our urban greenspace in search for the wide variety of birds that make pit stops in New York City as part of their spring migration.

Bring your own binoculars or ask a park ranger to borrow a pair.
