Check this small pond for ducks during the fall and spring, and shorebirds if the water is low. The few small trees around the lake could contain migrants in season, and sparrows during the winter. The small pond across from the entrance road often has as many ducks as Turk’s Pond does.
This small State Wildlife Area doesn’t look like much, but the hedgerows around the maintenance buildings can attract large flocks of sparrows, and the reeds along the creek support Virginia Rail, Sora, Green Heron, Belted Kingfisher, and Common Yellowthroat.
