Come to Hudson Crossing Park for a variety of bird sightings and events
Later in the Fall, Marlene Bissell showed us how to get ready for our feathered friends in winter. We found
out what our winged neighbors love to eat and how to make simple treats for them in our own kitchens.
Folks enjoyed an October walk with Linda White, Park Ranger,
at Saratoga National Historical Park, who shared a lesson about
local and migrating birds, listening for calls and songs, basic
identification, habitat preferences and fun facts.
Lindsey Duval, a volunteer/member of Southern Adirondack
Audubon Society has been birding at Hudson Crossing Park.
Along with a fellow birder they compiled a list of species that
they have seen here.
Lindsey says that the Double-crested Cormorants, pictured
here, love the old rail road trestle supports.
Here's a Great

The Birding Overlook is north of the
Dix Bridge and offers a peaceful spot to
watch for wildlife and admire the rolling
Special thanks to all who have donated their time and
