From Michele Dreger:

Report on 1st Sunday walk from Audubon Center

We had a great walk last Sunday.  There were 23 adults and 4 children.  It seems that Time Out New York had our walk listed and several new birders joined us. We hope that our birding experience will encourage them to return.  
The next Sunday walk will be on July 1st.  We will be honored to have the President of the Brooklyn Bird Club, Peter Dorosh lead the walk.
