Dexter Bog

Dexter Road runs between the northern end of Blue Mountain Road and Route 458 in Santa Clara and the small bog along it can be a great stop. The boreal species such as Black-backed Woodpecker, Gray Jay, and Boreal Chickadee are all possible, and the forest bordering the bog is home to species like Magnolia Warbler, Nashville Warbler, Purple Finch, and Blue-headed Vireo. The bog itself hosts Palm Warblers and Lincoln’s Sparrows, and Wilson’s Snipe can sometimes be heard winnowing from wet areas. Birders can easily stop in at Dexter Bog before paddling The St. Regis River and Santa Clara Flow.
