Lakeshore Plains West Field Trip

February 2 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Northern Shrike - Black Creek Park - © Jim Adams - Dec 26, 2015

A driving tour of the farm fields and open lands to the west of Rochester, this trip will search for Snow Buntings, Lapland Longspurs, Northern Shrikes, and hawks in the plains and country roads of western Monroe and Orleans Counties.  If the weather cooperates, we may venture as far as Golden Hill State Park for a look at the lake and a short walk.  Dress warmly in layers; bring a snack and a thermos filled with cocoa.  We will drive along backcountry roads for a few hours, stopping where we see bird activity.  Barring the possible walk at Golden Hill, this trip should be handicapped-accessible.

Meet at 9:00 a.m. at the Braddock Bay Park main parking lot.  Use the East Manitou Road exit from the Ontario State Parkway.

Extra FRS radios and scopes would be very helpful.
