Join the Museum of Natural History in Roger Williams Park on Saturday mornings at 9am in May to see the many birds of the park. Roger Williams Park is a 450 acre oasis in the heart of one the most densely populated areas of Rhode Island. The woodlands and large ponds provide an ideal place for birds to rest and feed on their migration northwards. Colorful parula, blackburnian, black-throated green, and magnolia warblers are among the migrants as well as the orchard orioles and spotted sandpipers that nest in the more secluded areas of the park. Besides being a migration trap, this urban oasis is home to Baltimore orioles, rufous-sided towhees, yellow warblers, pine warblers, and wood ducks. The park also has year-round residents like cedar waxwings, great blue herons, yellow-rumped warblers, fisher, and deer.
