This coming Sunday, September 7th, I will be leading a birding trip in Prospect Park. The trip is organized by the Linnaean Society of New York. There is no registration necessary and we meet at Grand Army Plaza in front of the Stranahan Statue at 7:30am. The statue is next to the path at the northeast corner of the park entrance.
My trip is a casual stroll through, primarily, the wooded areas of the park in search of migrating songbirds. Anyone familiar with my tours (and this blog) can expect some of the trip's focus to include wildflowers and insects. The length of the trip is flexible and I usually base it on the weather, productivity and people participating. You can bring lunch and a snack, but there is also a limited selection of food and beverages at the boathouse nature center.
If you are the chronically late type, leave yourself extra time because I like to begin my trips promptly. The closest subway stations to Grand Army Plaza are:
2 train - Grand Army Plaza
B train - 7th Avenue/Flatbush Avenue
Q train - 7th Avenue/Flatbush Avenue
Hope to see you Sunday.
