Hello fellow birders,
On Saturday September 9 at 6:45 PM, the Buffalo Ornithological Society and the NYS Purple Martin Project are leading our 7th Annual Purple Martin Fall Roost Site Field Trip. The event is at Buckhorn Island State Park on Grand Island, NY.
Meet at the large parking lot on East-West Park Rd. Thousands of martins typically congregate before going to roost in the reed bed in the Niagara River. Join us and see this exciting event! Please come and hear the latest news on protecting the Grass Island where the martins roost.
Directions: For people coming from points south: take the Long Road exit on the northbound 190. This exit will take you to Grand Island Blvd. Turn left and drive 100 feet or so to the 4-way stop. This is the intersection of Long Rd and Grand Island Blvd. At this 4-way stop, turn right onto Long Rd. Take Long Rd all the way to Baseline and turn left onto Baseline. Take Baseline to East River Rd and turn left. Find the large parking lot on the north side of East River Rd.
A non-strenuous, short walk is required. NOTE: There are no restroom facilities available at Buckhorn Island State Park. Leader Celeste Morien (585) 721-8202; <celeste.morien...>
