WESTPORT - The Adirondack Mountain Club will host a program entitled "Winter Visitors: an Introduction to Birding in Winter" on Monday, Jan. 18
Every winter, birds from the arctic regions 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 birds during the cold season.
This Adirondack Mountain Club program will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Leave with us from the Adirondak 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 523-3441. Cost is $30 for members or $35 non-members. There will be a maximum of 14 participants.
