Come and make a simple bird feeder to hang outdoors. Learn about resources for urban birds and birding in our community.
Each year in mid-February the Audubon Society and Cornell University conduct a Great Backyard Bird Count, calling on participation of the public. It’s fun and easy to be a part of the citizen science effort. Museum educator, Anne-Marie Starkey will be on hand to offer tips on using binoculars, and how to observe birds in the wild, along with information on the bird count. We welcome new birders and invite experienced ones to share their knowledge & tales.
Admission $5 /$12 per family. VOM members $4. Light refreshments served.
This program made possible through our Urban Nature Observation Programs supported by Con Edison.
