Allegany County Breeding Birds Field Trip

June 9, 2018 @ 6:00 am

We’ll begin our day along Rt. 21 overlooking Almond Dam looking for Bald Eagle, and possible shorebirds. We’ll bird in Christmas tree plantations in the town of Andover for nesting Magnolia, Prairie, and Yellow-rumped Warbler and possible Clay-colored Sparrow. We’ll check mature conifer plantations for Red-shouldered Hawk, Golden-crowned Kinglet, Blackburnian Warbler, Winter Wren, Mourning and Canada Warbler, and Blue-headed Vireo. We’ll have a picnic lunch at Foster Lake where we often have Common Raven, and we’ll check local ponds for nesting Hooded Merganser, Green Heron, White-throated Sparrow and more.

Bring a picnic lunch. Meet at 6:00 a.m. at the former Border’s Books lot (Near Pizzeria Uno, 1000 Hylan Dr.) on Hylan Drive off I-390. Others may want to join the group in Almond at the 7-11 gas/ convenience store on Rt. 21 at 8:00 a.m.
