An outdoor exhibition featuring dozens of artist-made birdhouses will open at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden next month. Debuting on June 11, “For the Birds” highlights the connection between birds, plants, and the importance of protecting plant ecosystems. The installation coincides with the release of “For the Birds: The Birdsong Project,” a multi-album collection of original songs and readings inspired by birds compiled by music supervisor Randall Poster.

With hundreds of parks and over 500 miles of waterfront, New York City is an excellent place for bird watching. The five boroughs serve as a temporary and permanent home to over 400 species of bird, thanks to both habitat diversity and location on the Atlantic Flyway, the route birds follow during migrations. From Pelham Bay Park in the northeast Bronx down to Great Kills Park on the South Shore of Staten Island, there is no shortage of birding activities in New York. With spring migration underway, we’ve rounded up the best places to find feathered friends throughout the city, most of which are accessible via public transportation. For guided bird watching tours and walks, check out events from NYC Parks, NYC Audubon, and the Linnaean Society of New York.
