Subject: Re: [cayugabirds-l] Howland Island question

Do you happen to have a copy of Birding the Cayuga lake basin - our Cayuga Bird 
club guide?
If so, info about Howland Island is on pages 130-131.

You have to walk at HI. No driving.
enter either from Rt 38 north of Port Byron - 1.8 miles, turn left on Howland 
Island Road, go 2 miles to the end of the road. park & walk across the iron 
Bridge and then start walking in the island.
from Savannah go north on Route 89 and turn right immediately on Savanna Spring 
Lake Road. Go 2.2 miles to Carncoss Road.
Turn right and go half mile to the end of the road where the bridge is. Cross 
bridge, drive a short way to parking lot at end of public road.

However - I have heard that the bridge & the road immediately after it to the 
parking area there has been flooded. I don’t know if it still is or not. So rt 
38 way is probably best to do.

Let me know if you have the basin guide. If not, i can type the suggested 
walking directions (3 mile loop from iron bridge).

I’m contemplating a trip to Howland Island tomorrow, but have never been before 
and am wondering if anyone has any tips.  Are there specific routes that are 
better for birders?  Do you recommend a driving loop or walking?

Thanks for any insights you can offer.
