Bath Off The Beaten Path: 2 reviews and 4 photos
Parker Nature Preserve is just east of Bath, NY.
It consists of some 200 acres of woods, fields (short grass and brush), wild pasture land and some rolling hills. There are a few hiker trails for access into some good birding territory. It is land donated to the Preservation Society and they maintain a parking area and do some mowing at the entrance area.
Species are ones common to northeast: robins, sparrows, chickadees, jays, cardinals
and also migratory ones: canadian geese, tennessee warbler, flycatchers, red starts.
Bring your binoculars, water and food (no facilities at the site), and appropriate clothing.
In spring, it is very muddy and mushy, so wear boots.
to get there:
I-86 exit 39, north on Babcock Hollow Road to route 415. go east on route 415 to connect to Telegraph Road. continue east on Telegraph Road to Velie Road; go north on Velie and look for park signs.
