We always have a weekday monthly birdwalk - our Tuesdays With Tom - as well as Birdwalks with Rick, other birdwalks, monthly NFAS-sponsored talks, special NFAS events, and related talks coordinated with other organizations.


Tuesdays with Tom
Tuesday, April 17, 2018, 8AM
North Fork Preserve (meet east of main entrance, do not park in the preserve)

The North Fork Preserve is an East End treasure. There are many different habitats,  and as a result, many species of birds that can be found there.  We'll meet at the cabin on the North Road just east of the main entrance to the preserve. Remember, don't go into the preserve to park!!   Meet time is 8 AM. Please call Tom at 631 275-3202 or email at tdamiani3@optimum.net to register for the walk. There is a $4 fee for nonmembers of North Fork Audubon.


Tuesdays with Tom: Maygration!
Every Tuesday in May (May 1, 8, 15, 22, 29)
Inlet Pond Park, 8AM

May is "THE" month for birding. That's why Tom does a walk every Tuesday in May. The locations for each walk will be decided the day of. Warblers, vireos, flycatchers and more will be seen at the different locations we will visit.

Meet at the Red House at Inlet Pond County Park in Greenport at 8 AM for each walk in May.
Please call Tom at 631 275-3202 or email at tdamiani3@optimum.net to register for the walk. There is a $4 fee for nonmembers of North Fork Audubon.


Spring Warblers by Sight and Sound with Pat Hanly
Friday, May 4, 2018, 7:30PM
Peconic Lane Community Center (map)
970 Peconic Land, Peconic NY

The month of May is the optimal time to find Warblers migrating through our area. Traveling from South and Central America, Mexico and the West Indies, a few of these neo-tropical migrant songbirds are staying here to breed, while many are only stopping by on their way to boreal breeding grounds north. Our eastern Warblers are strikingly colorful, active and exciting to find in your own backyard or favorite nearby wooded trail. This unique multi-media learning program will use photos, video and bird call recordings to focus specifically on how you can find and identify New World Warblers during their Spring migration. Migratory hotspots, both local and outside of our area will be presented. Good “Tools of the Trade” (books, optics, apps) will also be discussed. Pat Hanly, the presenter, is a local North Fork birder, hawk-watcher and nature enthusiast.
