View photographs of birds taken in Rockefeller State Park Preserve in Pleasantville, N.Y., 30 miles north of New York City. The 2,000-acre park has provided homecoming sites for thousands of birds, nurturing a variety of species, many of whom are songbirds. The Preserve has been called “warbler heaven” since there is a diversity of warblers.

This exhibition includes impactful images by passionate photographers, all birders, that reveal the diversity and beauty of these birds, including neotropical birds that migrate through and nest there.

Photographers include dAnwar Alomaisi, Kyle Bardwell, Todd Cameron, Heidi Fuhrman, Christine, McCluskey, Michael Garber, William Golden, Edward Mertz, Barrie Raik and Jeff Seneca.

This exhibition is curated by Audrey Leeds.
