Saranac Lake High School Pond

A nature trail around this small pond at the High School is a very productive place to go birding! Spring is especially exciting with migratory shorebirds making an appearance and, as the season progresses, songbirds fill the trees. In fall, waterfowl and geese are plentiful. If you visit when school is in session, please just be mindful of students and staff.

How to get there

From the traffic light near Town Hall, take Route 3 west toward Tupper Lake for 0.8 miles. Just the other wide of a soccer field, take a right onto Edgewood Road. In 0.2 miles you'll see the pond on the right. You can turn right, into the school. There is ample parking near this entrance.


This spot may seem surprising but it's a great place to see a lot of different bird species. Some that have been seen include: Common Yellowthroat, Bald Eagle, Great Blue Heron, Mallard, American Black Duck, Black-and-white Warbler, American Robin, Yellow Warbler, Song Sparrow, Canada Goose, Red-winged Blackbird, American Crow, Northern Flicker, Lesser Yellowlegs, and many more! Keep in mind that many of the birds species listed may only be present during spring and summer months. The roster changes with the season.
