Birding Hotspots, our online guide to the best places to bird in the greater Rochester area, contains all of the information that RBA formerly included in its Birding Hotspots printed guide. Many thanks to all of the volunteers who made this guide come together—especially Norma Platt, who headed the project.

This map and guide was once behind a members-only paywall, but we now offer it free of charge to anyone who would like to know more about where to bird in our area. No password required!


You can view a map of Birding Hotspots here. In total, we have mapped 37 hotspots in the region.
