A flat valley floodplain with rich marshes, ponds, and upland fields is cradled between steep-sloping forested hills. Abundant and diverse wildlife abound. We will explore this expansive wetland for Virginia Rail and Wood Duck families. We’ve seen eagles on a reliable basis, Red-headed Woodpecker, Cliff Swallow and more.
Meet at Vitale Park on Route 20A in Lakeville at 7:30 a.m. The park is between Nothnagle’s and the US Post Office on the south (lake side) of 20A. There’s a possibility of a trip extension to the Geneseo Airport area. Extra spotting scopes and FRS radios would be very helpful.
