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 2015 Newsletter
The Fall 2015 newsletter is being mailed this week, but you can get a sneak peek here! This newsletter contains information on our Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 seasons.
Fall banding has come to an end! Our unofficial seasonal total is 4,541 birds of 90 species, and 1,472 recaps. We are closed through the winter, but will be open again for spring banding around April 15. Hope to see you then!
2015 Visitor Challenge
More than 300 people visited the station this fall! Overall, more than 800 people visited BBBO this year, which completely obliterates 2014’s total of 700 guests. Thanks for making this challenge a big success. Maybe we’ll see 900 guests in 2016!!!
Spring banding is scheduled to start around April 15, 2016.
