Governors Island National Monument is an excellent place for birders. In addition to the traditional "backyard birds," you may be treated to a sighting of a red-tail hawk, killdeer, kestrel or barn owl.
National Park VIP (Volunteer-In-Park) Annie Barry provided detailed journal accounts of her on-island birding expeditions. Click on the links below to begin your "virtual" birding experience.
