Stop and ScanSITE DESCRIPTION:  Scan the pond for shorebirds, waterfowl and wading birds and look acreoss Prospect Avenue at the large woodlands. The site is as likely to attract many of the same migrant birds as other spots in the area, but perhaps not in large numbers. Yet that is what wildlife viewing is all about. You never know what you might find on any given day.
