2018 is the Year of the Bird, and the National Aviary wants to help you #NoticeBirds throughout the year!

Early spring is the peak of waterfowl migration in western Pennsylvania, and this tour offers you the possibility of seeing several hundred—even thousands—of ducks, grebes, loons, geese, and swans, all within a couple of hours drive from Pittsburgh!

Led by National Aviary ornithologist, Bob Mulvihill, you'll travel northward, stopping at several well known (and some less well known) waterfowl hotspots where last year we saw more than 20 species of waterfowl and other water birds, and also Bald Eagles and Sandhill Cranes! 

Entertaining and educational, National Aviary bus tours provide expert insight for participants of all ages and backgrounds, and this trip is great for people new to bird watching and younger watchers!  Bring your own binoculars, but Bob will provide a spotting scope which he will train on many of the birds you see, so that everyone is guaranteed to get memorable looks at the birds!

Plan to leave promptly at 8:00am and expect to return to the National Aviary by 4:00pm.
Price (including lunch) is $95 nonmembers and $85 members.
