NYSOA conducts field trips to great birding hotspots around New York State. Watch our home page for announcements. In most cases we offer a workshop on Saturday followed by a field trip on Sunday. Workshops are open to the public. The number of participants for each field trip is limited and individual/family members of NYSOA are given priority. Be sure to register early - most field trips fill up quickly!
The following NYSOA events were held in 2011-2012. Each Sunday field trip was paired with a Saturday workshop focusing on the trip's target species.
Pelagic ID workshop with Angus Wilson on Long Island. Pelagic trip was postponed one month due to weather but replaced by a field trip to Montauk on the original Febuary date.

One of the most popular events on the NY birder's calendar. Held at
a different location in New York State each year, it is an opportunity
for birders from all over the state to meet, exchange ideas, socialize,
and bird together. The annual business meeting, a papers session, identification
workshops, and a banquet with a prominent speaker are part of the event.
And, yes, some great field trips!
