An excellent birding report from The City Birder about the Brooklyn Bird Club’s recent trip to the Adirondack region. This was quite the journey, especially during the month of January. Here’s their itinerary:
Our itinerary included Croton Point Park, Fort Edward, Lake Placid (Chubb River, Adirondack Loj Road, Marcy Meadow, Riverside Drive), Bloomingdale Bog, Bigelow Road, Paul Smith VIC and Newcomb VIC.
There’s some excellent photography and description of their trip. Nothing like a birder when it comes to observations, details, and record-keeping. The highlight of their trip was at the Newcomb VIC where they saw Black-capped Chickadees, Red-breasted Nuthatches, Pine and Evening Grosbeaks. Can’t say enough about the VICs, open year-round, staffed, trails, and more. What a great resource for both visitors and residents alike.
