This field trip will take us to the different habitats of Papscanee Island Preserve consisting of deciduous forest, cultivated farmland and freshwater marshes where we will see a variety of bird species. Swallows, herons and Wood Ducks can be seen in the wetland areas. Early returning resident species could include Least Flycatcher, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Rose-breasted Grosbeak, and both Baltimore and Orchard Oriole. Veery, Wood Thrush and American Redstart are common, along with several other warbler and vireo species.

Meet at 7:00 a.m. in the Big Lots parking lot on Route 9 and 20 in East Greenbush to carpool, since parking at the preserve is limited.
