Belmar Historic Park
Aliases: Kountze Lake
At first glance, this small park may not look like much, but it can be surprisingly birdy and well worth a stop from spring through fall. The trees in the park can attract any number of migrant species; in addition to the common ones, Townsend’s and Virginia’s Warblers and Cassin’s Vireo can all be found during the fall. Kountze Lake, in the middle of the park, often has a variety of waterbirds. Hooded Merganser, Wood Duck, and other uncommon species are usually present. Also look for a variety of heron and egret species as well as breeding American Avocet during the warmer months.
