Members of the East Aurora Bird Club met on the shores of the Niagara River at Beaver Island State Park on Grand Island, NY. The mixed habitat of wetlands, grasses/shrubs/trees, and riparian zone make this an ideal bird watching location. Everyone enjoyed this 8th year of the club's participation in the Big Sit!
