The Audubon Guide to North American Birds is a fantastic online guide to identifyling birds.
The bird feeders in the Treman Bird Feeding Garden attract both forest bird species like chickadees and woodpeckers as well as some birds that prefer open environments near water like Red-winged Blackbirds.
Sapsucker Woods Sanctuary took its name from the discovery over 100 years ago of the first nesting pair of Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers in the Cayuga Lake Basin. The birds were discovered by Lab founder Arthur A. Allen and well known avian artist Louis Agassiz Fuertes. So marked the beginning of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s fascinating and unique history that has established its reputation as an internationally known center for the study and appreciation of birds.
Over 200 species of bird can be seen at the sanctuary including rarities like American Bittern, Scarlet Tanager, and many beautiful warblers that migrate there to breed. In addition there are numerous turtles and frogs around the pond, and healthy populations of deer, squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits, and mink.
