DOAS is now a partner organization of the New York State Young Birders Club, a special project of the NY State Ornithological Assocation. This club is for birders in New York State between the ages of 12 and 19, inclusive. Club activities include field trips, annual meetings and other events. In addition, youth members communicate via the YBC website, a newsletter, and an online discussion group. In addition to financial support, our Chapter’s partnership with the YBC includes DOAS organizing a field trip for the group to the Franklin Mt. Hawkwatch in November.
New York State has recently finished a five-year survey of breeding birds. See results at New York State Breeding Bird Atlas. (Click on the Breeding Bird Atlas Data and Maps link in the column on the left of the page.)
