What used to be an almost dead lake is now teeming with fish and bird activity, as well as other plant and animal life. Audubon New York and the Onondaga Lake Conversation Corps will be showcasing the restoration of Onondage Lake this weekend. "Images of a Recovering Onondaga Lake" features pictures of birds and other species taken by local photographers. Executive Director of Audubon New York Erin Crotty says it's no surprise wildlife has come back to the lake.

Birdwatchers and local spectators will be able to experience the wildlife of Onondaga Lake in pictures as part of a new exhibit. “Birds of Onondaga Lake” consists of wildlife photography of bald eagles and other birds. But according to Erin Crotty, President of Audubon New York, it also tells a story about a recovering habitat that is becoming a place for bird conservation.
