Join us on a journey to the beautiful Finger Lakes of upstate New York and the capital of North American birding, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology! We'll stop at Skaneateles Lake and Cayuga Lake to scan for a great diversity of migrating waterfowl and other wetland birds. Then, as our trip highlight, we'll explore the world-famous Sapsucker Woods and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology where our group will take a private, behind-the-scenes tour of the Macaulay Library. As our travels take us along the west side of Cayuga Lake, we'll stop at the breathtaking Buttermilk Falls and Taughannock Falls state parks. The finale of our fun-filled weekend includes an extended look at Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge and the North Montezuma Wildlife Management Area. Montezuma is a migratory stopover for Sandhill Cranes, Trumpeter and Tundra swans, Canvasbacks, Redheads, Pied-billed Grebes, thousands of Snow Geese, and more!
