The Lab of Ornithology (fondly referred to as the Bird Lab) is a treasure. To begin with, you can borrow very high quality binoculars at the front desk. Do so, because the birds are phenomenal. In addition, there are also guided tours that you can sign up for; wonderful. If you don't feel like walking, you can sit inside the... 更多

As backyard birders we got a kick out of this place. We've been to Bluebird symposiums in Ohio where one of the speakers worked at the Cornell lab of ornithology, so this was really full circle for us. We browsed inside at the different collections, especially admired the hummingbird one. Loved the artwork on the wall of the world geographical... 更多

I love this place! I've been visiting it for over 20 years, and it keeps getting better. The newest addition is a gigantic wall mural of the world with birds superimposed over the continents along with line drawings of their prehistoric ancestors. A built-in iPad on the second floor lets you choose a bird, read about its history and habits,... 更多
We were able to walk one of the trails, easily. Although we did not see many birds that day, I enjoyed the walk and I would try again another day if I were in the area again.
I wish I had more time here. I wish I had had the time to stay and watch the movies that were offered. As it were, we walked the boardwalk and saw a few birds and wildlife (chipmunks). We did not see as many birds as I would have liked. Perhaps it was too hot that day or cloudy, or?... 更多

Had no idea just how much went on at Cornell in the biology / nature fields. Amazing collection of specimens beyond just birds. Knowledgable young tour guide and nice bird watching trails. Worth the trip if you love biology and nature.

Hi Scouternurse, Thanks for taking the time to review the Cornell Lab. We appreciate the kind words! 更多
We saw the most birds at the feeders outside the main building, but no matter. The trails were very nice, flat, uncrowded. We saw frogs, turtles, and a snake, which was just as cool for us Coloradans. Inside, we played with the audio lab a little and saw the movie. Recommended it to family, who went to visit themselves a... 更多

Exhibits and mural in the building worth seeing and the sound attraction the heart of the lab. Fun for all ages. Plan on walking the trails which are very well maintained and easy to walk.
