Jamestown, NY – For an exciting experience this spring, the Audubon Community Nature Center invites you to travel to Oak Orchard, New York, to see the huge waterfowl migration.
The Oak Orchard Wildlife Management area is famous for hundreds of thousands of geese, ducks and other water birds stopping to feed as they migrate. The boardwalks and towers overlook vast ponds and marshes that fill with birds.
The Saturday, April 8, adventure is the first of several trips and programs to honor Audubon Community Nature Center’s 60th anniversary. Many ardent birders have visited Oak Orchard in hopes of seeing a rare migrant, such as a White-fronted Goose, Eurasian Widgeon, or other rare bird mixed in with the thousands of migrating waterfowl.
The trip will be led by Don Watts, a local birder and bird bander who enthusiastically shares his knowledge and expertise with birders of all levels.
