Birds of Madison County, New York free pdf Excerpt from Birds of Madison County, New York In considering the Bird fauna of a district, a knowledge of the topography and other physical conditions is important. The region in question includes all of Madison county, and is, roughly speaking, in the center of New York state. The district is traversed by rather deep fertile valleys seldom exceeding a mile in breadth and having a general trend of north and south. The north-eastern boundary upon Oneida county forms a part of the divide between the headwaters of the Mohawk and Susquehanna river systems. Along the hill slopes, in the numerous gorges and sometimes on the crests of the hills, one sees many of the outcrops of rocks of the Hamilton formation. Many of those appearing on the crests exhibit glacial striae. In fact the whole district with its gentle slopes, well rounded hills, its numerous glacial terraces, its morainic deposits, its mantle of till, and the presence of multitudes of erratic boulders, constitutes a typical glaciated region. The northern part of the county borders on Oneida Lake. A broad sandy beach many miles in extent furnishes an abundance of food for the snipes, sandpipers, plovers and other shore birds, while the size of the lake is such as to attract large numbers of the duck and other families of swimming and diving birds. While any bird taken on Oneida Lake or its shores outside of Madison county may be considered a part of the fauna of that county, it is thought best to include in the following list only those which have been taken in Madison county with the possible exception of a few recorded from Verona Beach, separated only by a small stream. The presence of five or six small lakes a mile or more in length renders the interior of the county also favorable to a limited number of water birds. But as these bodies of water usually freeze over during the early frosts, very few of the water birds may be found during the winter months. It will not be out of place to locate a few of the more important lakes and ponds. About three miles north of Hamilton are two, known locally as "Leland's Ponds."
