Birding in the winter

LAKE PLACID - Every winter, birds from the arctic and other regions of Canada move "down south" to the North Country to spend part of or all of the winter. During this trip to the open farmlands of the Champlain Valley and the waters of Lake Champlain itself, we'll search for Horned Grebes, Golden Eyes, Buffleheads, Rough Legged Hawks, Bonaparte and Iceland Gulls, Snow Buntings, Horned Larks, Bohemian Waxwings, and many more species. So sign up and learn how and where to find winter visitors during the cold season.

This program will run Feb. 15 from 9 to 2 pm. Leave with us from the ADK Loj at 8 a.m. or meet us at the boat launch in Westport, NY. Directions and other pertinent information will be sent out to participants. All participants must pre-register by calling 518-523-3441. Cost is $30 for members/$35 non-members. Maximum of 16 participants.

The Adirondack Mountain Club, founded in 1922, is a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to protecting the New York State Forest Preserve and other wild lands and waters through conservation and advocacy, environmental education and responsible recreation.
