COMMUNITY WELL-CHECK PROGRAM – Join Here
This program is intended to aid the Police, Fire, and Ambulance personnel with responding to a participant of this program during times of weather-related and other large-scale incidents or emergencies. Join Here
The Village of Tuxedo Park Emergency Response Plan Well-Check program is compiled and maintained by the Tuxedo Park Police Department. Our plan will list all residents who have signed up for it that may have special welfare needs or are vulnerable such as being mentally challenged, have limited or no mobility, confined to a wheelchair, have limited sight or hearing, are elderly or frail, and persons who require constant oxygen or other medical equipment to sustain life. Join here
This list advises first responders of the people who have special needs so we can check on them during emergencies and we can bring appropriate equipment and manpower to that resident if needed. Join Here
We encourage anyone with special needs to take advantage of this community policing service. Join Here
Thank you for your participation.

TUXEDO PARK ANNUAL BIRD COUNT – The Fyke Nature Association
TO: Village of Tuxedo Park
FR: Hughie Carola
RE: Tuxedo Park Bird Count
DT: December 19, 2020
Despite the cold, Dan, Ivan, and I had an enjoyable day on the 2020 CBC. Unfortunately, Dave was unable to join us. As is typical, we spent just over 2 hours in the Village; arriving at the Main Gate at about 10:15 and leaving by the South Gate around 12:25 PM. There are three main areas that we bird, the largest, of course, being the lake and its adjacent environs including the Clubhouse and Boat Club. The other two are the Racetrack (with the village’s only grassland habitat) and the area around the school. Because of the snow, there was a lot of bird activity along the roads – mostly Juncos and White-throated Sparrows – which we counted as we drove.
Tuxedo Lake itself is BY FAR the most important habitat within our entire Territory simply by virtue of the number and species diversity of birds we encounter there. Nowhere else – not Lake Sebago, not Sterling Lake, not any of the smaller lakes & ponds – do we find what we do on Tuxedo Lake. It is our “Ace in the hole” for increasing our species count but more importantly, it gives us an accurate count of the birds – specifically waterfowl – in our Count Circle on the CBC day. One oddity was that we counted NO Mallards (the most common duck in North America) on your lake.
That being said, we did find a total of six species we found nowhere else but in Tuxedo Park; the doc shows them with asterisks but they are: Ring-necked Duck, Bufflehead, Ruddy Duck, Bald Eagle, Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, and Field Sparrow.
42 bird species recorded, 26 in Tuxedo Park (61.9% of the total). The 6 species above represented 14.3% – a not-insignificant amount.
1,131 individuals counted 451 in Tuxedo Park (39.8% of the total). That is a HUGE number and as such, very important to the whole CBC effort.
I’ve attached a report titled 2020 Ramsey CBC_Territory A results_Tuxedo Park with our results of the day and the list specific to the birds we counted in Tuxedo Park.
Thank you again for your hospitality to us, especially at this tough time. Any semblance of normality is a blessing and helps one to keep moving forward. Please extend my thanks to Mayor McFadden, the VIllage Council members, and Chief Conklin and know that I am happy anytime to give a presentation virtual or (someday soon?) in-person about the CBC, Fyke, the birdlife of our shared region, and/or our longstanding citizen-science partnership.
Happy Holidays to all!
