Join Rochester Birding Association on an excursion to the private property of Janet Buchanan Smith for spring migrants, early nesters, and waterfowl. This property protected by Genesee Land Trust features 187 acres with two large ponds, mature woodland, and open fields all within .5 mi. of Lake Ontario. This land is only open to the public for special events such as this one.
Past trips have yielded eagles, bitterns, Sora rails, warblers, and Scarlet Tanager. We’ll walk along uneven trails, so bring a walking stick if needed and prepare for a medium-long hike in an outstanding sanctuary. We recommend bringing binoculars to see the birds up close and wearing boots as the ground could be wet.
Meet at Webster Park on the West corner of Holt and Lake Roads at 7am or at Amy’s Ponds at 7:30am. Advanced registration is required for this walk. View guidelines and sign up for walk (beginning May 2) here.
Directions to Amy’s Ponds: Take Route 104 east to County Line Road. Drive north until it ends at Lake Road. Turn right and travel approximately one mile to 484 Lake Road, Ontario, NY and turn down the long gravel driveway (on the south side of Lake Road) until you reach the marked parking area.
