Some remarkable birds have shown up at this village park on the shoreline of Tupper Lake, with more destined to occur, and the nearby cattail marsh to the south is one of the best wetlands in the Adirondacks. Birds of passage visiting the waters off the park may include Ruddy Duck, Red-throated Loon, Red-necked Grebe, or Double-crested Cormorant, while a check along the water's edge might turn up Semipalmated Plover, peeps (including Western Sandpiper), or Dunlin. Scan the gulls for Little, Black-headed, or Bonaparte's Gulls. Recreational human activities may disperse the birds during the day, but flocks of Horned Lark, American Pipit, and sparrows still frequent the extensive open area. After leaving the park, check along the causeway (but without stopping in Rte 30 traffic) for Bald Eagle, Ring-necked Duck, and Pied-billed Grebe. Walking along the highway or canoeing the marsh could turn up Common Moorhen or singing Marsh Wren. Sadly, Black Tern no longer nests here, but wandering Caspian and Common Terns have been seen, and even American White Pelican, Cattle Egret, and Sandhill Crane have turned up at Tupper Lake over the years.
