Spring Calendar

Springtime in the Adirondacks is ice out, birds chirping, blossoms blooming and the awakening.  Bears wake from their slumber.  Fish start biting.  Camps start opening.  Explore the miles of trails and enjoy a scenic drive as the wilderness bursts forth with flora and fauna.

“On the very ridge-board of the vast water-shed which slopes northward to the St. Lawrence, eastward to the Hudson, and southward to the Mohawk, you can enter upon a voyage the like of which, it is safe to say, the world does not anywhere else furnish”  William H. H. Murray

Hamilton County Tourism and Aububon NY are pleased to present the Annual Birding Festival in Hamilton County. Long Lake and Hamilton County are designated IBA, Important Bird Areas. Bird watching is a celebrated Adirondack experience. In the Adirondack Wild, it is marked by the Adirondack Birding Festival, held annually in June. Nesting season comes late in our mountains because of the altitude and latitude.

Among the rare boreal birds found here are Bicknell’s thrush, spruce grouse, American three-toed woodpeckers and many kinds of raptors and water birds. For a rewarding experience, book a bird-watching trip with a licensed guide.
