Birds and Seals at SoFo

What are some ways to observe birds in the wild? Where can seals be found on the East End? For kids and teens who enjoy learning about wildlife, the South Fork Natural History Museum in Bridgehampton has three upcoming programs that will answer their questions about birds and seals.

First up, at 10 a.m. on Saturday, the Young Birders Club will hold its regular monthly meeting at the museum. Kids ages 8 to 18 are welcome to sign up ahead of time. Frank Quevedo, the museum’s director, and Barbara Blaisdell, an expert birder and teacher, will lead the club. The museum suggests participants take a pair of binoculars and a field guide, though there will be a few extras to borrow. At 3 p.m., for kids 8 and up, Darlene Moore will explore the what, why, where, and how of bird-banding, a practice that enables birders and scientists to study these creatures.

Those eager to see seals can join SoFo on a field trip to Montauk at 10 a.m. on Saturday. Dai Dayton will lead kids and adults 10 and older on a moderately paced nature hike through a maritime forest to locations where seals can be seen sunning themselves. Binoculars are recommended.

All three programs are free and require advance registration, which can be done by phone at 631-537-9735 or by email to [email protected].
