details:
Birding with Frank: Fall Migration: Adults/Children 8+
Walk Leader: Frank Quevedo, Executive Director, South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo).

Montauk is one of Long Island’s best-known migration “traps"—areas where migrating birds congregate. When cold fronts are driven through by strong northwest winds, the migrants, flying at night, drift over the ocean. At dawn, with their energy reserves running low, they seek the nearest land and fly north to Long Island’s south shore beaches. Join Frank to observe the land and shorebirds that migrate through this Atlantic Flyway “migration trap.” Bring binoculars, a spotting scope if you have one, and a field guide to the birds of eastern North America.

Advance reservations are required. Programs free for SoFo members. Non-members: $15/ adult, $10/child 3-12 years, 2 and under free. Fees include free admission to the museum on the day of the event.
