Jones Pond

If we want to spot birds on the water, Jones Pond is a wonderful choice. Much of the shoreline is public land, with a nice sandy hand-launch and swimming spot.

The shoreline is a breeding habitat for a such warblers Nashville, Magnolia, and Black-throated Blue. Look for Bald Eagles, Great Blue Herons, Common Loons, and Osprey who will be busy fishing. The outlet forms a bog for wetland species like American Bittern, Common Yellowthroat, Black-backed Woodpecker, and Swamp Sparrow.  The elusive Olive-sided Flycatcher is known to frequent the area.
