With nearly a dozen bird observatories and thousands of acres of natural areas, Oswego County has a birding spot for you.

For thousands of years, migrating hawks, eagles, raptors and songbirds have flocked along the southeastern shores of Lake Ontario. These migratory routes provide ample opportunities for birders to witness unusual or record sightings. Many species of birds can be found along the Oswego Canal, including the elusive Osprey and Bald Eagle. Derby Hill, designated a New York State “Important Bird Area”, counted a world-record 19,531 red-tailed hawks in the spring of 1995.

Whether you are an amateur or serious bird-watcher, come birding in Oswego County!
