Adirondack Boreal Bird Training and Monitoring 2017

Thanks to a grant from Northern New York Audubon to Shingle Shanty and SUNY ESF, we are pleased to be able to offer up two boreal bird trainings this year as well as an opportunity on June 10th to do boreal bird surveys at various locations around the Adirondacks with experienced birders. 

This project builds off of the work that began under an EPA funded project to detect wetland response to climate change in the Adirondacks (the final report from that project can be reached by the link at the bottom of the page).

These trainings are to be held on the following dates and locations:
  1. Saturday May 27th, 2017 1 - 4 pm at Paul Smith's College VIC,8023 State Route 30
    Paul Smiths, New York 12970
  2. Sunday June 4th, 2017 1 - 4 pm at Adirondack Interpretive Center, 5922 State Route 28N
    Newcomb, NY 12852
The training sessions are a general overview of the project, an introduction to birds in the Adirondacks, an overview of the field methods for the survey and field time with experienced birders.  
If you are interested in attending the training in Paul Smiths on May 27th please RSVP to 
If you are interested in attending the training in Newcomb on June 4th please RSVP to 

Once we get a feel for how many folks might be interested we will reach out with specific information on locations, times and leaders, for the June 10th boreal bird survey day.
Thanks for your continued interest in boreal birds and please share this email with anyone who might be interested!
All the best,
Steve Langdon
