The Green-Wood Cemetery continues its popular “Birding in Peace” walking tours on Sunday mornings this spring (see dates below). Both novice and expert bird watchers have a rare opportunity to discover and observe birds of all species in the peace and quiet of Green-Wood before gates open to the public. Tours are led by Rob Jett, expert birder and founder of the birding blog, The City Birder.
Green-Wood’s April birding tours will be a feast for the ears and eyes with the trilling song of Pine Warblers and drumming pronouncements of Woodpeckers on newly blossoming trees – truly a sight to behold as Green-Wood’s grounds boast over 7,000 trees including magnolias, maples, quinces, and dogwoods. Guests will discover thousands of songbirds as well as herons & egrets at Green-Wood’s glacial ponds.
$15; $10 for members of The Green-Wood Historic Fund and members of the Brooklyn Historical Society. Reservations are recommended. To make an online reservation or to find out more information, visit www.green-wood.com/toursevents or call 718-210-3080.
These walking tours are open to birders of all levels. Participants are encouraged to bring binoculars. A limited number of binoculars are available at Green-Wood – for those who do not have their own – on a first-come, first-served basis.
Free copies of Green-Wood’s Bird Checklist will be available to all participants. Comfortable footwear is encouraged.
