Waterfowl visitors to Conesus Lake during the migration


During the fall and early winter, and then again in the spring, Conesus Lake is a stopover in the annual migration of many birds. We live in a major flyway zone. During these migration waves we have the opportunity to observe and interact with flocks of hundreds and thousands of different types of water birds. Ducks, geese and even swans can be observed swimming, resting, and feeding, using Conesus Lake as their pit stop for a short time.
