Geo Kloppel's suggestion for evening birding is right on. Michigan Hollow
Rd in Danby has Finger Lakes Trail off both sides which are great areas for
thrushes. Just walking along the road itself, several miles from Rt 96, I
have heard Veeries singing so loudly in the evening I could hardly believe
it. If you have AWD, Bald Hill Rd in Danby is another place flush with
thrushes. (It's actually part of the same habitat as Mich. Hollow)
Shindagin Hollow is another good spot.
Take insect repellent to any of these in the evening!!
