“BIRDING IN PEACE” WALKING TOURS AT GREEN-WOOD

October 6 @ 7:15 AM - October 20 @ 8:45 AM

$10 – $15

The Green-Wood Cemetery continues its popular “Birding in Peace” walking tours on Sunday mornings throughout the fall. Before the gates open to the general public, both novice and expert bird watchers will have a rare opportunity to discover and observe birds of all species in the peace and quiet of Green-Wood. Tours are led by Rob Jett, expert birder and founder of the birding blog, The City Birder.

In September, guests will be treated to sights such as offspring leaving their nests and venturing out on their own. Additionally, returning warblers will be in their less flamboyant fall plumage, and large numbers of blackbirds, flycatchers, sparrows, vireos, and swallows will also be passing through. By October, waterfowl will return to Green-Wood, and guests might be able to catch a glimpse of raptors migrating south. Guests who visit in November will be able to see the return of Green-Wood’s overwintering feathered denizens from the north.

Sunday, October 6 7:15 a.m. – 8:45 a.m.
Sunday, October 13 7:15 a.m. – 8:45 a.m.
Sunday, October 20 7:15 a.m. – 8:45 a.m.

$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. All walks are at a slow pace on easy to moderate terrain, but proper, close toed footwear is suggested.
