This trip frequently boasts more birds than any other RBA field trip. Of course, it gets an early start! We’ll look for birds not frequently seen on other trips, such as Acadian Flycatcher and Barred Owl. We’ll do a fair amount of walking: one somewhat steep but short forest trail and a dirt road down to the river level, as well as some roadside birding.
Meet at 5:30 a.m. at the Dam Overlook Gifts and Grill parking lot (use the Route 36 entrance to Letchworth Park). Pack a lunch and snacks as the trip will likely last well into mid-afternoon.
Extra spotting scopes would be very helpful.
