Lakeshore Plains West Field Trip

January 13 @ 9:00 am

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 Bunting, Lapland Longspur, Northern Shrike, 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 back-country 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 Braddock Bay State Park parking lot opposite the pavilion on East Manitou Rd. in Greece at 9:00 a.mExtra FRS radios and scopes would be very helpful.
