Park Information
History:
As a boy, at his own request, FDR was taught to shoot and collect birds by his father, James Roosevelt.  In the 1890’s, it was considered scientific to kill animals, stuff them, and study them. Some of the specimens in his collection include:  White Breasted Nuthatch, Chipping Sparrow, Blue–gray Gnatcatcher, Downy Woodpecker, Baltimore Oriole, Brown-headed Cowbird, American Goldfinch, Scarlet Tanager, Red-eyed Vireo, and Eastern Wood-pewee.  These species can be sighted on the property today.  We invite you to visit the FDR Home on tour to see his bird collection. Tours of the home are offered daily from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM for $9
 
Did you know … the state bird of New York is the Eastern Bluebird?
