Novice and Experienced Bird-watchers Welcome!

Come one, come all. You can enter the zoo starting at 8 a.m. via the Bronx River Gate. Then check off as many birds as you can find over the next few hours before meeting up for the final tally and awards. Our park is home to a wide variety of migratory and resident birds, including warblers, vireos, thrushes, woodpeckers, and more. All birds, including those in the Bronx Zoo collection, are fair game.

Not an expert birder? We'll hand out field guides and have people stationed around the zoo to aid the search. Along the way, you'll learn about bird-watching and bird conservation. Of course, you can make frequent detours to explore other wildlife, as well.
