Fall Birding credit Wave Hill

Fall is peak migration time along the Hudson River and we have a front row seat! Join naturalist and bird guide Gabriel Willow as you explore Wave Hill’s gardens, woodlands and the skies overhead to look for resident and migrating birds. A limited number of binoculars, monoculars and walking sticks are available to borrow at the Perkins Visitor Center. Ages 10 and older welcome with an adult. Severe weather cancels.

Registration required, online or by calling 718.549.3200 x251.

Questions? Please email us at or call the telephone number and extension above.

One walk follows a route through woodland trails and mixed-material pathways with varying elevations; the other follows more accessible paved areas within the more central parts of the garden.
