Get Directions

Join Rochester Birding Association for a trip to the Bergen Swamp! This trip will feature nesting birds: The mix of vegetation zones provides secluded nesting habitat for the usual Western N.Y. species as well as those more characteristic of the Canadian zone such as Blue-headed Vireo, Hermit Thrush, Magnolia, Blackburnian, Black-and-white, Canada and Nashville Warblers.

This is a walking trip of 3 miles on variably wet and slippery corduroy trails that must be followed closely for safety reasons and because of the fragile habitat. Sturdy boots (rather than sneakers) are strongly recommended, and hiking or ski poles may be useful.

Where to Meet? Meet at 7:30 a.m. main trailhead entrance to Bergen Swamp: 6646 Hessenthaler Rd, Byron, NY 14422
