Upper and Lower Lakes Wildlife Management Area is a mosaic of deciduous marshes, forests, and fields, and it is one of the most diverse places to go birding in the North Country. We will search the marshes for species such as Black Tern, Virginia Rail, American Bittern, Black-crowned Night Heron, and Sora, while Osprey and Bald Eagle cruise overhead. Indigo Bunting, Baltimore Oriole, Warbling Vireo, Willow Flycatcher, and Yellow Warbler are common along the brushy edges of the marsh as well, and we will search for Golden-winged Warbler which also breed in the area. Field habitats support a variety of species including American Kestrel, Bobolink, and Eastern Meadowlark while neighboring forests harbor breeding Broad-winged and Red-shouldered Hawks as well as singing Wood Thrush, Scarlet Tanager, and Veery.
