New York: Birding with a Camera® (BwC)

Tour Overview:

Known for its big cities and epicenters of art and culture, New York state has many secrets to share with any naturalist willing to look a little closer. Outside of the concrete jungles, New York is home to several extensive ecoregions and over 400 bird species. Join us on this exciting tour as we travel from the iconic Niagara Falls of western New York to the humbling and awe-inspiring Adirondack Mountains. This easy tour will focus on observing and photographing some of the most range restricted birds in the state. The tour starts with a few days exploring the avian diversity of the deciduous forests along Lake Ontario to the grasslands of Central New York. However, the core focus is on the most famous and elusive species of New York’s boreal forests. Trekking through bogs and up into the state’s highest peaks, we will seek birds like Bicknell’s Thrush, Black-backed Woodpecker, Boreal Chickadee, and Canada Jays, along with many other much wanted species.
