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.
Spring Banding Season
Now is the time to head out to BBBO! We are getting good numbers and excellent diversity – and the weather isn’t altogether terrible!
The Spring 2013 issue of the Marsh Wren is now available online. This issue reports the results of our fall 2012 banding season, and contains a report on the inaugural year of our Owl Project. Subscribers who receive a print copy will be receiving them in the next few days. If you would like to support BBBO and get your own twice-yearly report, click here.
May 29: Volunteer Picnic and Memorial Garden Ceremony. All volunteers are invited to join us for a pot-luck picnic at 5:00 in the BBBO parking lot, followed by a remembrance of friends of BBBO at 7:00.
