This Sunday: Bird-watching tour at Freshkills Park

There are still seats available for this Sunday’s 10 am bird-focused bus and walking tour of the Freshkills Park site.  Our bird tours are held bimonthly and are jointly led by park planners from our office and naturalists from the Staten Island Museum.  They last about two hours and go into the details of the park plan as well.  Lots of birds out this time of year: hawks, turkey vultures, osprey, killdeer, hooded mergansers, ducks, geese and more.  If you’re interested in attending, contact Martha at martha.powers@parks.nyc.gov.

The osprey who have nested at the site are now tending to their nestlings.
