The shoreline of Lake Ontario is a haven for migrating warblers and other passerines. We’ll look for those early warblers, such as Palm and Yellow-rumped Warblers, to whet our appetites for the weeks to come. We will stop at several areas where these birds tend to congregate in spring. Learn the basics of identifying our most colorful migrants on this trip. We’ll be looking for color patterns, song, and the distinctive behaviors to enhance identification skills with these fast-moving beauties. Several trails may be very muddy, so boots are STRONGLY recommended!
Meet at 8:00 a.m. at the parking lot behind Lakeview Community Church, 30 Long Pond Rd. in Greece (near Edgemere Dr.).
Note: This is a field trip for beginners. New birders should feel free to join these trips regardless of experience level: bring binoculars if you have them, and we will share our scopes. The pace & focus of Beginner Trips may not be satisfying for experienced birders. Our Beginner Trips focus on teaching identification skills, learning new habitats, and answering questions. Experienced birders are welcome but may be pressed into service as educators!
