connecting people & nature since 1953
We are a friendly community of people who enjoy exploring the outdoors. Our 1,100+ members are drawn from northwestern Westchester County, New York and beyond. All share a common desire to learn more about birds and other wildlife, and a common belief in the importance of preserving and protecting wildlife habitats. We hope you’ll browse through our upcoming events and join us for a field trip, workshop or community program.

Westchester County sits in the middle of the Atlantic Flyway: a migration path along the Atlantic Coast. With the Hudson River and Long Island Sound on either side of the county, thirty-nine species of shorebirds have been sighted in Westchester. Shorebirds can be as small as Least Sandpipers, pictured here, not much larger than a sparrow and the smallest shorebird in the world. Least Sandpipers are often spotted in spring and fall at Croton Point on the Hudson or at Marshlands Conservancy on the Long Island Sound. Starting in mid-July, shorebirds that nested as far north as the Artic will begin moving south through the Hudson Valley.
