The festival reaches into the vast Adirondack wilds of Hamilton County and includes the surrounding forests of our hamlets: Long Lake, Indian Lake, Speculator, Raquette, Blue Mountain Lake, Piseco, Morehouse, Lake Pleasant, and Inlet.
Hamilton County contains more than one million acres of the Adirondacks. With more than 60 percent of those acres classified as either wilderness or wild forest, it is one of the best locations to watch boreal birds. Entering its 14th year, the Hamilton County Birding Festival brings together bird watchers from all over the United States to explore and discover the amazing birds of the Adirondacks.
