The NYC Department of Parks & Recreation will conduct an aerial survey of the deer population over various parks in The Bronx until Saturday, March 1 between the hours of 6PM-1AM.

The parks include Pelham Bay, Van Cortlandt, and Riverdale. The survey will be conducted by a single-engine aircraft utilizing infrared imaging to measure the temperature difference between the deer and the surrounding environment.

The aircraft will originate from and return to Morristown Airport NJ, and will conduct the survey at an altitude of approximately 1,000 feet, traveling from the eastern portion of the borough westbound.
