Club Leader: Hannah Mirando, experienced birder who attends East Hampton High School

Club Advisors: Frank Quevedo, the South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo) Executive Director, & Barbara Blaisdell, a member of the SoFo Board of Directors

Thousands of scoters, loons, eiders, and many other arctic avians come to our inshore waters off Montauk Point each winter to feed on the vegetation and invertebrates that live on the ocean floor. Here, we will scan the ocean surface with our scopes and try to identify these arctic visitors as they dive for food and frolic in the surf.

New members welcome! The club which meets monthly, is open to anyone ages 8-18 interested in learning about birds.  Please bring binoculars and a field guide to birds of the eastern United States.  Let’s go birding!

This is a FREE program.

Advance reservations are required for all events. For more information, reservations, and directions to meeting places, please call: (631) 537-9735.
