Join us for a First Sunday Bird Walk at Greenwich Point Park.

Due to the coronavirus warnings, we will not be sharing scopes or binoculars, and will be keeping a safe “social” distance while walking.

Bring binoculars and join us for a casual walk around Greenwich Point Park in search of wild birds in diverse habitats.  Held year-round on the first Sunday of every month at Greenwich Point Park, the walk begins at 9:00 am near the southern concession stand by the flagpole on the main beach. The walk lasts from 2 – 3 hours, but participants can leave at any time. All ages and levels of expertise are welcome.

No registration is required and the walk is free. Contingent upon Town of Greenwich approval for 2020 starting in May, for complimentary Park entry during the spring, summer and early fall season, inform the front gate personnel that you are attending the First Sunday Bird Walk.

Officially designated an Important Bird Area, Greenwich Point Park, located at Tod’s Driftway in Old Greenwich, CT, is a great place to watch birds year round. Migrating songbirds, shorebirds, flycatchers, hawks and more stop by in spring and fall, a variety of waterfowl feed in the waters of Long Island Sound in the winter, and summer brings breeding birds and waders.
