Don't know much about birds?  That is ok, we will teach you!  Learn to use binoculars and a bird detective checklist.  See for yourself why Jamaica Bay is a special place for all kinds of birds.  Binoculars and field guides will be provided, but more are always welcome.  Dress for the weather, but the program may be adapted to an indoor program.  Bus Q52/53.
