What others have said about this event

Heather's life-long passion for birds really transpired through her cute and quirky presentation. She's so knowledgeable about all types of birds and gave us some great tips about how we can locate them in our own backyard (or some fun hotspots)! Heather covered everything from sounds to behaviors to cool technology we can use to help track them down! This class ended up being really suitable for our group, as we had a ton of bird lovers and birding enthusiasts. I'd recommend this for all the NYC bird lovers out there!
