Governors Island is home to a stunning variety of birds. Over 200 avian species have been recorded on the Island by birding enthusiasts, from waterfowl to birds of prey and more. In a fantastic series of videos, NYC Audubon volunteer wildlife monitor Cathy Weiner captures many of Governors Island’s feathered friends on her YouTube channel.
