Lawns & Gardens
Visitors are welcome on the grounds of the Mansion House. A perfect watchable wildlife destination, the historic property features century old trees including two New York State champions, and beautifully landscaped lawns and gardens. Picturesque Sunset Lake, the Larches and nearby Oneida Creek are good locations for birding. Birds observed throughout the area include great blue heron, cedar waxwing, belted kingfisher, Baltimore oriole, chimney swifts, great white egret, bobolinks, rose crested grosbeaks, spotted sandpiper, and a variety of woodpeckers, hawks, bald eagles and migratory songbirds. Turkey vultures nest in the Silver Maple on the south lawn every spring.
