Migratory Bird Walks on the Atlantic Flyway
Recreational birdwatching has become one of America's favorite and fastest growing outdoor activities. Birds reveal much to us about the natural world. With more than 10,000 species dispersed throughout the world, they can teach us about diversity, geography, food web dynamics, all of which fosters a greater understanding and respect for healthy ecosystems. And, they inspire us with flight and their amazing adaptations that allow them to succeed in an ever challenging world.
The Center's campus is located along the Atlantic Flyway, the primary east coast migration route for migratory avian species. In fact, the National Audubon Society has noted that about 500 different avian species utilize the Atlantic Flyway.
Join experienced birding guides for a Migratory Bird Walk ideal for the novice or experienced birder. Species lists will change depending on the season in which the walk is taking place, but can include exciting colorful spring migrants like the Painted Bunting or a myriad of spectacular duck species in the winter. For more about species seen during these walks, please see our eBird Hotspot page: http://ebird.org/ebird/
After the walk, guests are invited to join the regular morning bird of prey tour and flight demonstration at no additional cost.
