According to the Saw Mill River Audubon Society, over 400 species of birds have been observed in Westchester County. For some they are a part of the visual and aural scenery, and for others, an endless source of information and inspiration. It’s easy to get started with birding, and there are many existing resources to help you figure out what you are seeing.

Birds are warm-blooded vertebrates with feathers and scaly feet. They lay eggs and typically provide parental care by sitting on the eggs and caring for hatchlings and nestlings.
