within Adirondack Park

This road provides five miles of good spring and summer birding, with little traffic, plenty of room to pull over to stop (which should be done often, to look & listen), and varied habitat. Start at the small pond hidden on the right, then check all water and bog areas. Common Loon will be found on Polliwog, Middle, and Floodwood Ponds. Bog pockets should have Olive-sided Flycatcher nesting in tall surrounding spruce. The two alder-choked streams should yield Canada Warbler, while Veery frequent densely vegetated wet areas. Hardwood and mixed forests have Blue-headed Vireo, as well as the ubiquitous Red-eyed Vireo, plus Black-throated Blue Warbler, American Redstart, and Ovenbird. Park at the Long Pond area and bird the short distance to the water. An impressive list of Adirondack birds can be observed by the time East Pine Pond is reached.
