Get outdoors even if it’s cold. Montezuma Audubon Center Director Chris Lajewski says the months of November and December are offer prime viewing at the Wetlands Complex in Wayne County. Smaller crowds, less people hiking paths, and even more to see. “The leaves are off the trees, so it’s a great time to see things that otherwise wouldn’t be visible during the spring, summer, and fall,” he said during his monthly appearance on The Debrief Podcast.

Among the highlights of this episode is a discussion about 150 Sandhill Cranes that have recently been out at the complex, as well as the deep dive into the Snowy Owl. This species of owl is a favorite among local photographers, who regularly send their sightings to the newsroom.

There’s also a cool program called FeederWatch, which can be done at home and involve the whole family. Readers and listeners can also contribute to the Montezuma Audubon Center by clicking here.
