This four-hour birding field trip will take birders to Madawaska, a favored boreal birding area for a half-century or more. The area encompasses conifer forest, mixed hardwood forest, and a variety of wetlands, as well as Madawaska Pond. Participants will meet in the Paul Smith's College VIC parking lot. This field trip involves some "birding by car," with frequent stops along the way to take advantage of the varied habitats. Participants will caravan west on Keese Mill Road, which becomes Blue Mountain Road, stopping along the road to listen and watch for boreal species. The group will park at the Indian Rock parking area and hike into Madawaska Pond, which is about 1.5 miles from the parking area. Sightings have included the Black-backed Woodpecker, Gray Jay, and Boreal Chickadee.
