Winter Secrets of the New York Grasslands

Read Roberta Kravette’s notes on the birds that winter in the Fort Edward, NY grasslands. She provides a great description of the birds that winter here, where to find them, and the best time to spot them. In addition, there are some incredible photos by bird and wildlife photographer Gordon Ellmers of Northern Harriers, American Kestrels, Barred Owls, Snowy Owls, Rough-legged Hawks, Snow Buntings, Horned Lark, and the beloved Short-eared Owls that winter in the Washington County Grasslands.
