SOFO: Birding with Frank: Shinnecock Specialties: Adults/Teens
Walk Leader: Frank Quevedo, Executive Director, South Fork Natural History Museum
The barrier beach area at Shinnecock is one of the few remaining undeveloped dune/salt marsh habitats on the eastern end of Long Island, an area that frequently has wintering Snowy Owls and Short-Eared Owls. Join Frank on this birding expedition at Shinnecock, one of SOFO’s most popular birding walks. If we’re lucky, we may see either of these two owls and even an American Bittern, Snow Bunting, or a lingering Clapper Rail. Bring binoculars and/or a spotting scope and a field guide to birds of the Eastern United States (if you have one). This walk is for adults and teens, although children over the age of 10 may attend. A shuttle bus will be available from SOFO to the birding location. Limited space is available on the bus; please register as soon as possible for this program if you would like a seat on the bus.
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.
Please call 631-537-9735 for reservations and info about meeting place.
