The best place for watching wildlife in the Finger Lakes

The natural surroundings of the Finger Lakes region makes it a logical home to a variety of wildlife. Deer, turkey, and waterfowl can often be seen from the many country roads in the area. The area's innkeepers have some experience with where to see the wildlife in the area. Here are their recommendations for the best place for watching wildlife in the Finger Lakes.


White Deer at the Seneca Army Depot

The country's only naturally occurring herd of white deer (not albino) makes its home in the protected land of the old Seneca Army Depot. Driving along Route 96A just North of Sampson State Park is almost sure to result in a white deer sighting (especially near sun-up or sun-down. They are beautiful and truly unique. ~ Steve and Kathy Wirt - Wine Country Cabins B&B

Definitely the White Deer in the area of Romulus and Varick near Seneca Lake ~ Cristina & Fernando - The Farr Inn

Birds Eye Hollow -  It is a wildlife protection area slightly southwest of the town of Tyrone, just past the causeway between Waneta and Lamoka Lakes.  Though it is an excellent place to see migratory birds, wild turkey, deer, pheasants, ruffed grouse and even muskrats are all frequent visitors.  When the weather gets a little nicer, lots of different species of turtles can be seen sunning on rocks and floating trees.  Great spot for hiking and/or a picnic lunch. Located in between Keuka and Seneca Lakes. ~ Terry - Keuka Overlook Bed and Breakfast

Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge would be my choices for watching wildlife. It has some really nice trails. Woods, creek, orchard, birds and many opportunities to see other wildlife. Located at the Northern end of Cayuga Lake. ~ Glenda Nash, Gentle Giants B&B
