RBA Young Birder Event: Durand Eastman Park & Irondequoit Bay

November 16, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am

Cedar Waxwing - Durand Eastman Park - © Dick Horsey - Dec 08, 2015

We’ll start by taking a walk through Durand Eastman Park.  We’ll likely see a mix of winter passerines like woodpeckers, robins, chickadees, titmice, Cedar Waxwings, finches and cardinals, but with a little luck they’ll be supplemented by something special.  Bohemian Waxwing, Red Crossbill. White-winged Crossbill, and Pine Grosbeak have all put appearances in the park in November!

After we’ve worn out our walking legs, we’ll take a quick drive to Irondequoit Bay Outlet where we should be able to get good looks at several species of waterfowl and gulls.  Long-tailed Ducks, Bufflehead, Common Goldeneye, three mergansers, and other ducks are sometimes joined by loons, scaup, scoters, and grebes.  The platoons of Ring-billed Gulls are joined by Herring, Bonaparte’s and Great Black-backed Gulls . . . and maybe even a gannet like the one the YB team saw in 2017.
