Birdwatching or birding is a multigenerational activity that can be done by anyone, regardless of age, ability or background, anywhere in New York. Explore new outdoor recreation opportunities by checking out a great birding location near you.

The New York State Birding Trail is not a physical trail, but "connects" all of the best birding locations in regions across the state.
