Join Rochester Birding Association for their avian survey & tour. Learn about the ones that fly in the sky and try to spot them within the swamp. A fun and active day for everyone!

This is a walking trip of 3–5 miles on variably wet and slippery corduroy trails that must be followed closely for safety reasons and because of the fragile habitat. Sturdy boots (rather than sneakers) are STRONGLY recommended, and hiking or ski poles may be useful. Massasauga rattlesnakes are VERY rarely encountered.

For this event please meet at 7-eleven 8400 Buffalo Rd, Bergen, NY 14416

Parking at the trailhead is limited, so we will meet at 7:30 a.m. in the parking lot of the 7-11 Gas Station at the junction of Routes 33 and 19. Drive about 20 miles west of Rochester on I-490 to exit 2. Turn right (west) on Route 33 and go about one mile to the junction with Route 19. Turn left onto Route 19, then make an immediate left turn into the parking lot.

Where to Meet? Parking lot of the 7-11 Gas Station at the junction of Routes 33 and 19
