Birding RTPI and Beyond

Roger Tory Peterson didn’t invent birdwatching. However, his Field Guide to Birds, first published in 1934, sparked a passion for birds and bird watching throughout the world. According to the US Fish and Wildlife Service, there are an estimated 45 million birders in the United States, alone.

Are you one of those birders? Would you like to be one?

Your birding adventure begins at RTPI. We offer bird walks and bird programs, along with links to birding programs throughout Western New York, Northwestern Pennsylvania and Southern Ontario.

And, of course, our Snowy Owl Museum Store is the perfect place to buy your Peterson Field guide — we carry all 65 titles in the famed Peterson Field Guide series, covering topics from birds to plants to insects, fishes and reptiles and more.
