Birding Field Trip: Jamaica Bay National Wildlife Refuge, Queens NY

August 18, 2018 - Broad Channel, NY

Only a stone's throw away from JFK Airport, Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge is one of the best locations in the Northeast to view shorebird migration. Every August, thousands of Sandpipers, Plovers, Dowitchers, Yellowlegs and more gather on the refuge's man-made mudflats to feed and rest on their long journey south. Pools and tidal marshes also provide summer breeding grounds for Herons, Egrets, Gulls, Terns and Raptors so we expect to see a large variety of different bird species. 

Those who want to meet at Audubon Greenwich and carpool can meet us in the main parking lot at 11 AM

Those who want to meet at the refuge can meet us in  the Visitor's Center Parking Lot at at 12:15 PM (See map/address above)

Bring muck boots or any mud resistant pair of shoes that you may have as well as sunscreen and weather-appropriate clothes.
