Share Birding in Peace

Event Details

Credit: Rob Jett

Before our gates open to the general public, birding expert Rob Jett leads these peaceful Sunday morning walking tours to discover the many birds that call Green-Wood home. Locally nesting birds will be incubating eggs or actively raising their first broods.

Peak Spring Migration Birding
Sunday, May 7, 14, 21, & 28 and Saturday, May 6 & 20 at 6:00 AM
From Ruby-throated Hummingbirds to over 20 species of colorful wood-warblers, our peak migration tours will feature many of the 163 bird species that have been recorded at Green-Wood during the month of May. Beginning just after sunrise, we will experience spring’s dawn chorus at the active time of day for birds.

Summer Birding
June & July Sundays from 6-7:30am (except July 2nd),
Sundays August 6th & 20th from 6:30-8am

In July we should see the offspring of our resident red-tailed hawk bravely preparing to leave the nest. Warbler songs will be replaced by chirring Cicadas and the tweets of fledgling birds. Butterflies and dragonflies are abundant. By late-July, expect the arrival of the first southbound migrants.

Grab a copy of our Bird Checklist before you begin. Comfortable footwear is recommended.

$10 for members of Green‑Wood and BHS/$15 for non-members.
