birds at green-wood

You may know birding expert Rob Jett from his Birding in Peace tours. You know, the ones that meet at 6 am? Always wanted to go on a birding tour at Green-Wood but not a morning person? This tour is for you!

The early birder might “get the worm” but you can birdwatch at any hour. Join Rob and a small group of fellow members to roam the grounds while hearing and seeing the many feathered friends of Green-Wood.

Price: $15 for members, $20 for non-member guests

Walking Tour
(see details below)

You can expect to see different species on each tour. April marks the start of spring migration so you may see (and hear!) varieties of pine warblers, woodpeckers, and songbirds perched on blooming trees. June is within peak spring migration, during which 163 species of birds have been recorded at Green-Wood. You may see birds ranging from wood warblers to ruby-throated hummingbirds!
