Fort Ticonderoga birding

While a visit to Fort Ticonderoga is usually aimed at understanding American history, the fort’s grounds can be excellent for birding. Scarlet tanagers, rose-breasted grosbeaks, and Baltimore orioles breed in the forests and field edges, as well as a variety of other species.

The area is best in spring and fall migration when the brushy edges of the fields and woods can hold large mixed flocks of migrating warblers and other songbirds. Be sure to also keep an eye open for migrating raptors moving through the area in spring and fall.
