Edge Habitat

Ithaca, New York 14882, United States

Created By: Cornell Lab of Ornithology


This transitional habitat contains a diverse mix of meadow plants, low bushes and shrubs, and taller trees at the forest's edge. Many warblers can be found foraging for insects here during migration. Some year-round residents, such as cardinals, finches and doves, enjoy this spot for seeds in the winter, and high-yet-visible perches for mating songs and displays in the spring.
