Birding Outside of Westchester County

Pelham Bay Park, Bronx
   
Pelham Bay Park with its mixture of woods, pine groves, shoreline, marshes, and capped landfill make this the top place to bird in the Bronx.
In winter look for hawks and owls. The woods can hold many half hardies and Long Island Sound may have loons and ducks. A hawk watch can be conducted right outside your car in the main huge parking lot in the fall. The nearby stadium area has breeding Monk Parakeets. Look for their huge stick nests on the light poles or just listen for their boisterous squawks. The fields south of the landfill holds a variety of sparrows in fall and winter.
