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.
The season is nearly over, but there are still neat birds to see until the end of October! Juncos, Pine Siskins, and goldfinches have been filling our nets daily, as well as the typical fall mix of kinglets, sparrows and thrushes. Stop by for a walk through the late October woods – leaves crunching beneath your feet – and enjoy the tail end of migration!
