  Good Green Farm
Speedsville, New York
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Good Green Farm in Speedsville NY, was
established in 2005.  We hope to provide nesting, resting, and feeding areas for
ducks, wood birds, and many other water birds and songbirds on the 25 Acres.
This listing was taken from Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge and thus contains
abundant waterfowl listings.
This resource lists 315 species of birds that have been identified on
Montezuma Refuge since its establishment in 1937.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Most birds are migratory, therefore their seasonal occurrence is coded
as follows:
Season
Sp - Spring - March to May
S - Summer - June to August
F - Fall - September to November
W - Winter - December to February

u - uncommon: present, but not certain to be seen
o - occasional: seen only a few times during a season
r - rare: may be present but not every year
