Bog Meadow Brook Trail, an old rail trail just east of Saratoga Springs, runs along the northern edge of a swamp and consists of wetland habitat with two ponds with a wet mixed forest in between. In late May this habitat becomes busy with migrants, including warblers (approximately 15 species previously reported), vireos, flycatchers, swallows, and sparrows. A shorebird or waterfowl species may be possible, along with Virginia Rails.

Meet at 7:30 a.m. at the trailhead pull-off on Meadowbrook Road, about 0.3 mile west of Stafford Bridge Rd/Rt. 67. Please carpool to the destination if possible, as parking is limited.
