This is a great opportunity to explore an upland region of northeastern Wyoming County including New Compehner Farm (6340 LaGrange Road Wyoming, NY 14591). We will look for migrating and resident warblers, a variety of native sparrows, hopefully returning cliff swallows, both oriole species and open country birds, in a nice mixture of open fields and wooded habitats and bird friendly plantings. We will focus on locating several nesting species. This trip has a little of everything on a beautiful farm.
Easy walking, but will cover a mile or two; wear sturdy shoes. The trip will last until noon. Use a restroom en route, if possible (there is a McDonalds in the town of LeRoy), otherwise a bathroom is available at the home of the leader.
Meet at 7:30 a.m. at 6340 LaGrange Road, Wyoming, NY 14591.
Leaders: Hans Kunze 585-813-2676 and Rick Stevens 585-689-1882
