Birding in the Saranac Lake Area
Change of seasons brings great birding.

The Seasonal Cycle

Winter first begins to assert itself in the Adirondacks and North Country during the latter half of fall. Cold fronts from the north bring with them sleet and snow, only to be followed up by warmer and often sunnier days as the seasonal fight over weather supremacy takes place in the skies above and on the landscape around us. These same cold fronts bring with them ducks and other aquatic species racing south on the wind, and birders across the region can find these birds stopped over on almost any body of water across the region – including Lake Colby and Lake Clear.
