Drum Street Road and Chapman Road

Drum Street Road cuts from Fort Covington through a series of private fields and hedgerows before it enters the Akwesasne Mohawk Reserve. Just before it crosses into the reserve, Chapman Road heads north into the reserve as well, and these roads provide access to a series of wetlands. From a small rise along Chapman Road birders can stop and look east over a large marsh where species like American Bittern, Great Egret, Black-crowned Night Heron, and Green Heron can be found. Drum Street Road continues into the Reserve and passes through wooded wetlands and early successional habitats good for Willow Flycatcher, Northern Waterthrush, Veery, and they offer the potential for Golden-winged Warbler as well. Cook Road also cuts through similar habitat on its way to Hogansburg, although finding a safe place to park along it can be difficult.
