Bird Watching Tour Coming To Inwood Hill Park, Park Rangers Led – Patch


INWOOD, NY — Mark your calendars bird lovers. The New York City Parks Department announced Thursday its schedule of free birding tours this spring, including in Inwood Hill Park.
The tours will be led by Urban Park Rangers, who will highlight the best viewing spots to help New Yorkers locate and identify spring migratory birds stopping in the city.
The birding programs are appropriate for all skill levels and beginners are welcome, but everyone that attends is asked to bring their own binoculars.
The Upper Manhattan tour will take place in Inwood Hill Park on May 15, from noon to 1 p.m. People are asked to meet at Seaman Avenue and Isham Street.
“Bird migration is an exciting sign of spring, and our parks are the premier destination for all kinds of feathered friends–from warblers to raptors and more,” said NYC Parks Commissioner Sue Donoghue, in a news release. “As birds and New Yorkers alike flock to the parks this spring, we invite everyone to tune in to our new soundtrack for the season and bring a pair of binoculars on a birding tour with our Urban Park Rangers.

If you’re confused about the reference to a “new soundtrack,” the Parks Department has launched a “Good Migrations” playlist on Spotify for the bird migration season.
“It is a playful tribute to springtime migratory birds with hit songs,” according to the press release from the Parks Department.
The songs include:
