Great place to visit. It is very welcoming and peaceful. I have watched the live bird feeders online and it was neat to see them in person.

Very interesting bird song laboratory. One can go into the room and pull up bird song from many different birds. There is also trails one can hike. However, would not go there when the mosquitos or black flies are out as the place is swampy.

Great scenery, and be sure to visit the Cornell Ornithology Lab's little store. Great finds for bird lovers.

Begin at the Ornithological Center and wander around the 5 miles or so of trails. Huge oaks and other mixed hardwoods provide a quiet and restful atmosphere.

Located across from the airport is Cornell University's Ornithology Ctr. Very nice visitor center and miles of walks around lakes and ponds, through the woods, lots of birds, both migratory and local. Borrow a pair of binocs from the visitor center for your walk. Very peaceful - lots a of places to stop, sit and enjoy nature.
