Ken Kemphues and I will be leading a full-day field trip around Cayuga Lake this Saturday, December 7. We'll be focusing on wintering waterfowl, but will also look for wintering field birds.
Snow is predicted for Friday, but Saturday looks like it will be partly sunny, with temperatures in the 20's. Bundle up with extra layers for the cold. Bring something to drink, snacks and/or lunch, binoculars, and a spotting scope if you have one. We will also make a stop to purchase lunch food. Swans, Loons, and Grebes are out on the lake along with a variety of wintering ducks. In the fields today we found a single Lapland Longspur with several Horned Larks along Lake Road, and Snow Buntings in the King Ferry area. No guarantees for these on Saturday, but we'll take a look. Meet at the east end of Stewart Park at 8:00 am for carpooling. (Turn right as you enter the park). We expect to return by 4:30 pm. This trip is open to all. See you Saturday!
