Prospect Park has a variety of habitats to view birds in and all of the trails are accessible. Part of the walk will be on a paved bike path and the other half will be on hard packed gravel path with a short boardwalk section in the wetlands portion of Prospect Park. All paths are flat. Total distance covered is about 2 miles. We will spend three hours meandering through the park looking for any resident birds and some early migrants. I will have a scope available and an extra pair of binoculars. Beginner birders and families are encouraged to join!
