Cayuga Lake is an Audubon designated Important Bird Area because of the incredible number of waterfowl that use the lake during winter and migration seasons. Hop in the Montezuma Audubon Center van for an excursion to the northern part of the lake where up to 30 species of ducks, geese and swans can be seen. Bald eagles and snowy owls are a possibility too!
(There were estimated in this past numeral counts for birds, over 800,000 snow geese there. Also at Tschache (pronounced Tiz-shaky) Pool in Montezuma of Rt 89 52 Bald Eagles there. And there were many other raptors and migratory birds. Last winter the Red wing blackbird stayed here until just after MLK day -they fly to MD in mid to late September. (one of the ways to study weather pattern changes and climate change is through migratory birds.)
