Birding with Frank – Shorebirds of Hampton Bays

May 30, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

$7
Birding at Shinnecock Bay

Walk Leader: Frank Quevedo, South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo) Executive Director

Join Frank on this shorebird migration walk at Shinnecock. These beaches — tidal flats and wetlands — are excellent staging areas for migrating birds. They provide abundant food sources for the birds’ nourishment and thus ensure the energy reserves they need to continue and sustain their long-distance flights. In addition to seeing migrating shorebirds, you’ll also be on the lookout for sparrows, rails, grackles, and other specialties of the area. You can also check out the ocean for pelagic birds, which occasionally come in close at this time of year. Bring your binoculars, a scope, and a field guide to Birds of Eastern North America, if you have one. For adults and children ages 12 and older.

To make a reservation for this program, please call the museum at 631.537.9735
