The greater Rochester region and Genesee Valley offer abundant opportunities for bird watching, and the RBA offers many resources to help people find birds and document their sightings.
Birders may choose from more than 50+ field trips to these destinations all year long. Attendance is free and open to the public.
RECORDING AND REPORTING SIGHTINGS
The RBA has been keeping detailed records on trends and sightings for many years, and we publish them on our website and in the Little Gull.
LOCAL BIRD SURVEYS
Throughout the seasons, Rochester birders participate in various surveys and monitoring projects. These provide an opportunity to be outside, collect useful data, and do meaningful work with other birders in a fun environment.
