The Mills-Norrie-Staatsburgh BCA is located within two state parks and one state historic site that share adjacent boundaries; Margaret Lewis Norrie State Park, Ogden and Ruth Livingston Mills State Park, and Staatsburgh State Historic Site. During spring and fall migration, songbirds can be found in abundance along the forest banks of the Hudson River. Of 75 Neotropical migratory songbird species that breed in New York, 29 have been observed within the BCA. Of 170 species reported in the parks, 73 are reported as common in one or more seasons and 57 of these have been reported as breeding. Characteristic species found during migratory and breeding periods include Eastern Woodpewee, Great Crested Flycatcher, Red-eyed Vireo, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Veery, Wood Thrush, Tennessee Warbler, Yellow Warbler, Black-throated Green Warbler, Prairie Warbler, Palm Warbler, Black-and-white Warbler, American Redstart, Ovenbird, Common Yellowthroat, Canada Warbler, Barred Owl, and Red-shouldered hawk (Special Concern). The Hudson River adjacent to the north end of the park and the BCA boundary is documented as a Winter Waterfowl Concentration Area. Bald eagles (Threatened) use the Hudson River shoreline and other areas of the park during all seasons.
