We will make an early start to travel north to the Newcomb area to look for wintering boreal species such as Pine Siskins, Crossbills and Common Redpolls. From there, we will continue on passing through Long Lake and finally to Sabattis Bog south of Tupper Lake to continue the search. Gray Jays and Black-backed Woodpeckers are likely. Be prepared for a long day, snow under foot, and cold weather. There is a Stewart’s in Long Lake.
Meet at the Park & Ride lot at Firehouse Rd. at Exit 9 (Route 146) in Clifton Park at 7:00 AM. Firehouse Rd. is just east of the Northway overpass and straight ahead if taking the exit ramp going north.
