Birding with Frank—Shorebirds at Shinnecock

Sat Aug 8, 2020
10:00am
8 and older
Free with museum admission (Adults $10; Children $7.50)

Summer is the best time to view some of the fifty or more species of shorebirds that comb the beaches, sand flats, and marshes of Long Island. On this walk, bird fans visit Shinnecock Bay in Southampton and focus on plovers, yellowlegs, oystercatchers, and sandpipers as they feed by wading in shallow waters.

Please note that, as mandated by the latest State Executive Order regarding COVID-19 safety precautions, outdoor nature walks are limited to a maximum of 25 people which includes staff. SOFO will at all times follow stringent six-feet distancing separation protocols required by the Department of Health for the safety of participants and environmental educators. Masks and gloves are provided for all attendees.

Advance reservations are required for all events. To register for this walk, which is limited to 25 people, please email info@sofo.org. Spots will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis, and your reservation will be confirmed by email.
