Bird Walk at Untermyer - September 25
Join Frances Greenberg on a bird walk through our natural areas on Saturday, September 25, from 8:30 a.m. until 10:00 a.m.
Fall is the perfect time to go or to start birdwatching. Many birds are migrating south, passing along the Hudson River, which is a part of the Atlantic Flyway. Untermyer Gardens, with its views of the Hudson and the Palisades, can be a good place to spot bald eagles, among other raptors, and songbirds going south for warm winter weather.
Learn what birds are living here and learn to recognize the ones traveling through. Learn techniques for spotting birds. You may even add a few to your lifetime bird list!
Frances Greenberg is the President of the Hudson River Audubon Society. She has been birding for more than 25 years, and has a life list of 940 birds. Fran also photographs birds, and the red-bellied woodpecker photograph used in the graphic is her work.
This tour is appropriate for beginner and experienced birdwatchers. Bring your own binoculars (8 x 42 are the best for birding but others can work well too), dress for the weather, and wear sturdy shoes.
Rain Date: Sunday, September 26 from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.
