Welcome to BBBO

Who we are

Braddock Bay Bird Observatory is a non-profit organization dedicated to ornithological research, education and conservation.  BBBO is operated entirely by volunteers, with the financial support of our members.  Our primary research and education facility, the Kaiser-Manitou Beach Banding Station, is located on the south shore of Lake Ontario northwest of Rochester, NY.  Find out more.

Fall Banding

We are open for the season!  The Yellow Warblers have moved on, but we are still mostly getting locally breeding birds like Gray Catbirds and Song Sparrows.  The days have been awfully slow, but they’ll pick up once we get into September.  The last half of September is best for seeing warblers, and they’ll be accompanied by streams of sparrows, thrushes and kinglets.  The trails are in fantastic shape, and it’s a great time to be outdoors even if there are only a few birds to see.
