Larchmont Reservoir (Sheldrake Lake)     E-BIRD MAP       E-BIRD CHECK LIST       GOOGLE MAP

Sixty acre preserve.

The reservoir is great for early spring migrants, look for plenty of Yellow-rumped, Palm and Pine warblers in the later half of April. May brings in plenty of other warblers and migrants. A pair of Pileated Woodpeckers breeds here, most recently in the wood on the opposite side of Goodlife Pond. Look for breeding Barn and Rough-winged Swallows too.
A variety of ducks can be found here in late fall through early spring. In winter look for Bufflehead and Hooded Merganser. 
Take Hutchinson River Parkway to the Weaver Street, Route 125 exit (exit 21 northbound and exit 20 southbound).
Turn left onto Weaver Street and go 1.4 miles to the L.I.F.E Center, Friends of the Reservoir Parking area on the right.
Take the wide trail that leads up to Goodlife Pond and the lake.

Some parking is also available up from the visitor center.
