Outside of Westchester

Tarrytown Reservoir

Saw Mill River Parkway to exit 23, Eastview. Turn west (left from northbound Saw Mill, right turn from southbound) to commuter parking lot on right, just before small dam or continue along road to other side of the reservoir for another paved parking lot.

A paved path runs through the woods and along side the reservoir. Good for finding breeding birds in summer including Green Heron, Pine Warbler in evergreens on west side of the reservoir, Yellow-throated Vireo along path, and.occasional Hooded and Golden-winged Warblers. Up into the woods you'll find breeding Worm-eating Warbler and Ovenbird. Ducks in fall and winter. Eurasian Wigeon recorded here once.
