To learn more about when birds migrate, where they go and the paths they take, check out National Audubon Society's new BIRD MIGRATION EXPLORER .

The tool includes prairie warbler data collected in the Preserve.  Science like this is fun and helped establish the Albany Pine Bush as an Important Bird Area and a NYS Bird Conservation Area. Fire-managed pine barrens are providing essential habitat to breeding season, migratory and wintering birds.
