Winter Bird Visitors of Northern New York

Winter Bird Visitors of Northern New York

Each year, avian visitors from the far north move south to spend the winter in our northern New York region. Some of the species, like Rough-legged Hawk, Northern Shrike, and Snow Bunting, can be found every winter. Other species, such as Pine Grosbeak, irregularly irrupt, while some species visit on a fairly regular schedule, such as the Common Redpoll, which arrives every-other winter. 

Joan Collins of Adirondack Avian Expeditions and Workshops returns to North Country Live to talk about why these birds migrate to our region, and where you can find them. The presentation will feature many species that visit northern New York in winter, including owls and finches, using photographs, audio, and video.
