The Brooklyn coastal region rivals its neighbors for bird diversity, particularly during migration and winter birding. Most of Brooklyn's coast and shoreline faces southward towards the expansive New York City harbor. This immense barrier forces exhausted migrating birds to land for refueling, rest and protection. The many coves, inlets and inner bays afford waterfowl a safe heaven.
