Sandhill Cranes - unique to New York State

At the north end of Cayuga Lake, in central New York, is part of a wetland area with more than 18,000 acres of marshes, wooded swamps, small ponds and streams. This area is the Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge. Bird watchers call it the "Atlantic Flyway", a stopover for migratory birds. There are many observation pools at this refuge and several wildlife species can be seen such as American coots, muskrats, great blue heron, geese, osprey, and bald eagles. Also spotted has been a pair of sandhill cranes which are unique to New York State.
