Birding: Shorebirds

Jun 12, 10am - 11am

Beach 30th Street Playground

New York City is home to an amazing abundance of wildlife. Our Urban Park Rangers will guide you to the best wildlife viewing spots in the urban jungle.

Shore birds such as piping plovers, oystercatchers and terns visit Rockaway Beach each year to nest and raise chicks from spring through the summer. Learn more about these and other species founds near the beach. 

To enhance your experience we encourage you to bring binoculars and field guides.
