Catskill High Peaks Bird Conservation Area

Catskill peaks over 3,500 feet in elevation comprise this BCA, in particular those with dense subalpine coniferous forests. Bicknell's thrush prefers dense thickets of stunted or young growth of balsam fir. This species of special concern is found less frequently in young or stunted spruce and heavy second growth of fir, cherry or birch. Another bird species of interest at this site is blackpoll warbler.
