Sitting just west of Malone along Route 11, the airport has breeding Killdeer and Savannah Sparrow during the summer. During the fall birders can find Northern Harriers hunting as they migrate south, but the airport may be at its best during the winter. It is then that Snow Buntings and Lapland Longspurs come south while Snowy Owls occasionally winter in the area. Birders can drive in the main access to the airport and park in the public parking zones. From there they can scan the runways and fields, being sure to avoid any area that is marked off limits.
