If you ever watch birds in New York, you can be a part of the Breeding Bird Atlas! Everyone is encouraged to participate from 2020-2024. Beginner and advanced birders alike can enhance their birding experience by observing bird behaviors. And you can be involved as little or as much as you want. Whenever you go birding—be it in your backyard, at your summer camp, or in your favorite park—every sighting counts! Learn more about how you can participate in the third NYS Breeding Bird Atlas!
