Great Adirondack Birding Celebration

June 5, 2015 - June 7, 2015

The 13th annual Great Adirondack Birding Celebration is scheduled for 5-7 June 2015, at the Paul Smith’s College Visitor Interpretive Center (VIC) in Paul Smiths, New York. The event will feature field trips to boreal birding hot spots, informative lectures, and workshops. Field trips include: two all-day birding trips on Friday (Birding Across the Adirondacks and Birding the St. Lawrence Valley), plus a selection of half-day field trips on Saturday and Sunday (Bloomingdale Bog, Whiteface Mountain, Intervale Lowlands, Madawaska Flow, Birding by Ear at the VIC, Beginner Birder Workshop at the VIC, and Heaven Hill Farm/John Brown Homestead).

The keynote speaker is Chris Rimmer, conservation biologist and founding director of the Vermont Center for Ecostudies. He will speak on the conservation of the Bicknell’s Thrush, drawing on the findings of twenty years of research.

Some of the boreal species that participants in the birding festival hope to find include the Black-backed Woodpecker, American Three-toed Woodpecker, Boreal Chickadee, Spruce Grouse, Bicknell’s Thrush and a variety of migrating warblers, including the Golden-winged Warbler.
