Adirondack Boreal Birding Festival
June 10 - June 13
Located entirely within the Adirondack State Park, Hamilton County is the third largest, yet least populated, county in New York State. Over 60 percent of the land area is either wilderness or forest. The county’s million acres of forest, 1,500 miles of rivers and streams and over 56,000 acres of lakes and ponds provide unequalled birding and wildlife-watching opportunities.
This event features birding hikes, walks, safaris, outings, and seminars throughout the county. All field trips are free, but registration is required for each outdoor event. Nesting birds, rising trout, rushing water, wildflowers, and the newborn of many species make the woods and waters of Hamilton County a desirable location to explore.
While birding in the park is enjoyable throughout the entire year, during springtime, it is a place of excitement and discovery. By June, all of the birds that migrate to the Adirondack region for the summer have arrived and are in the height of breeding season.
