Three Rivers Bird Conservation Area

Three Rivers BCA provides a mixture of grassland, shrubland, wetland and forest habitats on 3,615 acres in the town of Lysander, Onondaga County. These habitats support a diversity of early successional grassland and shrubland bird species including brown thrasher, American woodcock, and bobolink. Marsh and wetland habitats support nesting ospreys (special concern) and bald eagles (threatened). Other species at risk include Henslow's sparrow (threatened), grasshopper sparrow (special concern), vesper sparrow (special concern), and Cooper's hawk (special concern). This site also attracts a wide diversity of songbird species during migration, including wood, veery, hermit, gray-cheeked, and Swainson's thrushes. Northern shrikes are commonly found during the winter.
