Upcoming Trips

Below are the birding/nature trips for the weekend of June 12-13, 2021:

Eastern Long Island Audubon Society

Birds of the Meadow & Woods, Eric Salzman Memorial Bird Walk
Saturday, June 12, 2021, meet at 8:30am
Leader: Frank Quevedo
Description: For many years, the late Eric Salzman, a SOFO board member of long-standing, led this walk to explore the avian life of the meadow behind the South Fork Natural History Museum and the adjacent Greenbelt woodlands and wetlands. With his keen musical ear, Eric was adept at identifying birds simply by their songs and calls. We hold this annual walk in his memory and cosponsor it with the Eastern Long Island Audubon Society, an organization in which he was very active.
Registration: Registration information to come.

Leaders: Members of FBC
Description: Join FBC and NYC Queer Birders for a trip to Prospect Park to celebrate pride while birding! With June comes warmer days and a much slower and mellowing kind of birding. It also means lots of awkward baby birds, and honestly there’s nothing more wonderful than that.
