Powder Mills Park is a mature woodland and wetland park that can be productive for many late-migrating or nesting species. In recent years, Baltimore Orioles, Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, Scarlet Tanagers, Pileated Woodpeckers, Red-tailed Hawks, American Woodcocks and Blue-winged Warblers have all nested there.

The trip will continue with a visit to the BANC Sanctuary on Railroad Mills Road, where we’ll walk the trails around the woodland, wetland, and creek habitats. Nesting species there include Eastern Bluebirds, House Wrens, Eastern Phoebes, and adjacent tree lines have produced a variety of migrating warblers. Both locations are mostly flat trails; waterproof footwear is advised.

Please note that no restroom facilities will be available at the Sanctuary.

Meet at 7:30 a.m. at the Powder Mills Park Fish Hatchery parking lot on Park Road.

Leader: Richard Ashworth 585-381-2189 and co-leaders Tom and Jeanne Verhulst 585-362-0803
