The Woodlawn Preserve is located in the Southeast corner of Schenectady County abutting the western edge of the Pine Bush. The area contains a flood control pond, forested sand dunes and general wetland habitat. Previous trips have come up with 6 species of sparrows and 5 species of woodpeckers as well as both species of kinglets. Great Blue and Green Herons, Wood Duck and perhaps other waterfowl can be found on the pond. Hopefully, weather could provide us with some late migrating warblers along with some sparrow family birds.

Meet at 8:00 a.m. in front of Barnes & Noble in Mohawk Commons on the corner of State Street and Balltown Road in Niskayuna. We will carpool the short distance to the preserve.
