Bird Watching

The Adirondack Park is one of the greatest places for bird-watching or birding as it is called. If you combine Yellowstone, Everglades, Glacier, and Grand Canyon national parks, the Adirondack Park would still be bigger. The Adirondack Park is the largest publicly protected park in the contiguous United States.

With all its natural beauty, The Adirondack region is a fantastic place to travel and to walk through the woods listening and looking for the next species on your life-list. Migratory birds are back in the area by June, while some species can be seen all year long.

A good set of binoculars helps you observe without startling your quarry.

If there is a birdwatcher in you or in your family, bring them to Lewis County for a great bird-watching opportunity.

Of the more than 100 bird species that take refuge here, you are likely to see spruce grouse, ruby-crowned kinglet, Lincoln’s sparrow, palm and blackpoll warblers, yellow-bellied and oliver-sided flycatchers, and Bicknell’s thrush.
