AARP NY and our friends at Audubon NY are proud to present a 4-part series, Birds in Your Backyard & Beyond. This program is meant for anyone who has an interest in watching birds and attracting them to your yard. We’ll review birding skills, ways to identify birds in our neighborhoods and nearby natural areas, and the incredible diversity of birds around us.

Please note this is a 4-part series. Be sure to register for each class individually!

  • June 8 - Tuning Our Ears to Bird Sounds: The sheer volume of songs and calls can often feel overwhelming for birders, but these sounds offer an opportunity and a challenge We will help you build your birding skills—and love of birds—by learning how to bird by ear.
