Birding the Adirondacks:
Teddy Roosevelt Bird Walk
20 July 2013
Adirondack Birding Center Director Brian McAllister led a bird walk on the Heron Marsh Trail on 20 July 2013. The walk was part of the "TR" Birding Series. The walk began at 9:00 AM, when we met in the VIC building at the Paul Smith's College VIC. It was a cloudy, rainy day after three days of rain. We saw or heard a total of 29 birds. Highlights of the walk included some excellent views of a family of Ring-necked Ducks on Heron Marsh. We also saw both a Great Blue Heron and an American Bittern overflying Heron Marsh.
In the parking lot and near the VIC building, we saw or heard the following birds:
