Jones Pond

If you 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 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.
