Western New York: Perfect Spot For Wintering Birds!

Winter in Western New York can be difficult, but the frigid months are especially tough on wildlife. Animals not migrating or hibernating have to find other ways to survive until Spring.

But spending the winter here is not always a disadvantage. The American Robin is one of the region's most common birds in the warmer months, and most of the population migrates south for the winter. But some of the robins actually choose to remain here for the winter, and it might give them a wing up on the competition.

Connie Adams is a Senior Wildlife Biologist for the NY Department Of Environmental Conservation. "Migration is a very dangerous thing, and if they can survive the winter without migrating, there's food here, and our winters have been getting milder, then it is actually advantageous for them to stay, this is because when Spring does arrive, they are the first ones on the breeding territories."

Award Winning English Cuisine in Our Backyard!

Award Winning English Cuisine in Our Backyard!

It was back in May of this year when I first found out about the English Pork Pie Company from an article on Buffalo Rising about the successful husband and wife bakers that had been outgrowing their Cheektowaga bakery.  Since then the award winning English Pork Pie Company have moved to a much larger location on South Park in South Buffalo for their growing business.  At the moment you can currently buy their frozen goods at their store front, but the owners hope to eventually open their own version of a “Little Britain” with a restaurant/pub and specialty shops.
