Braddock Bay Bird Observatory is a non-profit organization dedicated to ornithological research, education, and conservation. Located on the south shore of Lake Ontario in upstate New York, our avian research facility bands thousands of songbirds each spring and fall in an effort to better understand their migratory behavior and ecology.
At BBBO, our primary research program focuses on studying songbirds on migration, and we supplment that project with several others focusing on breeding birds, nest box species, and owls.
BBBO offers a variety of training and professional development programs including organized classes and workshops, small-group and independent instruction, and NABC certification.
We hope the resources here will help you attract, enjoy, and protect birds in your neighborhoods and beyond.
