Tips for birding Peterson Road
Peterson Road stretches through some large agricultural fields in Greene County. I suggested it as a hotspot because I’ve had pretty good diversity this year after “discovering” the stretch hoping for Snowy Owls in December. I had Lapland Longspurs there in winter 2014 and many Horned Larks. I’m sure Snow Buntings use the fields as well. In a wet spring, it is been good for ducks and shorebirds when the fields hold standing water. There are also at least two more permanent ponds that have held good numbers of dabblers.

The entire area is viewed from public roads. There are no parking spaces, though I’ve managed to bird it many times simply by pulling to the side of the road. There is very little traffic here and the open space allows for plenty of visibility.
