With Sapsucker Woods at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology to the south and the Montezuma Audubon Center to the north, Aurora is situated on a globally-important migratory path and surrounded by spectacular bird-watching sites and trails. Ask for a pair of binoculars and a suite of printed birding guides. Depending on the time of year, prepare to see everything from Bald Eagles to Ringnecks, Hooded Mergansers, Shovelers, Mallards, Wigeons, and Canvasbacks.
