Band of Love: Show your loved one you care this Valentine's Day with a special bird-friendly gift

Endangered Piping Plovers, threatened American Oystercatchers, Osprey, and Great Egrets return throughout the spring and summer to New York City each year, having traveled great distances from the Bahamas, the Gulf of Mexico, or areas even farther away. We know of these birds' winter whereabouts largely through the efforts of NYC Audubon to band a small amount of birds each spring season.
