Along the Perkins Clearing Road, listen for the rich chirry, chirry, chorry, chorry song of the Mourning Warblers emanating from the blackberry thickets. The trail should provide most of the Adirondack Wood Warblers, and the first high, thin zi-zi-zi-zi-zi-zi-zi-zi-zi of Blackpoll Warbler at a certain elevation will indicate that the 3,597-foot summit is really not that much farther ahead. Boreal Chickadee and Bicknell's Thrush are also found in this high-elevation zone. All of these birds are quite secretive at times and might only be heard and not seen. The best view of the West Canada Lake Wilderness Area can be seen from the top of the stairs to the tower.
