Pond along FR 523

0

A rather small farmer’s pond that is somewhat distant from the road, this body of water nonetheless attracts a good number of ducks in spring and fall, in addition to birds like Western Grebe and Wilson’s Phalarope. A spotting scope is recommended to see the birds well from the public road.
