Birding in Peace 2021

In March of 2020, like most things in the country, the Green-Wood Cemetery "Birding in Peace" tours came to a screeching halt. We restarted the dawn walks again in 2021 as the cemetery became an oasis for, not just the birds, but for New Yorkers needing a respite from the worries of the lingering pandemic. This past Sunday was the final tour for 2021 so I thought I'd share the year's official tour species list and a short slideshow video. Enjoy. FYI - we begin the tours again on Sunday, January 23, 2022.
