Leaders: Peter Davenport and Fernand Brunschwig
Description: In spring, Central Park becomes a global birding hot-spot. Thousands of colorful songbirds migrating from the tropics stop in the park each day in April, May and early June to refuel on insects before continuing north toward their breeding grounds. Join us for a walk through the north end of the park to learn how to identify these birds—flycatchers, warblers, thrushes, raptors and more—and search for rarities. Bring walking footwear and binoculars and/or a camera with a good telephoto lens. Don’t be late—We will start walking at 7:45 am sharp.
