facts about Governors Island

Surprisingly under the radar,Governor's Island is gaining a reputation as a birding hotspot.

At last look, the total species list now stands at 160 species. Breaking down for example prime migration month September sits at 92 species. Now that doesn't mean a high daily number nor rushing to the island on good wind day but potential is there for a relaxed birding tour. Unfortunately the first ferry leaves  mornings at 10 am from Battery Park ( 1030 from Brooklyn bridge park). Last day is Sept 27.its worth exploring
