Join FIBA Executive Director Laurie LaFond and avid birder Rich Speidel for a private preview of the 64 acres we’re working to purchase near FIBA’s Alfred Z. Solomon Grassland Bird Viewing Area. This is prime habitat for grassland breeding songbirds! Likely sightings include Northern harriers, American kestrels, Eastern meadowlarks, Bobolinks, Savannah sparrows, Red-tailed hawks and dozens more; Grasshopper sparrow and Upland sandpiper possible. We’ll visit the nearby NYS DEC Wildlife Management Area (WMA) if time permits.
