Knight Pond Professional Review and Guide

"As with so many other excellent birding sites described in this book, Knight Pond is well known to a handful of local birders and virtually unknown to others. It is worth taking your time as you drive down the nearly 2-mile-long dirt road leading to the pond. Various points along the oak-lined road allow for vehicles to pull off and park. Beginning on the Knight Pond Road, look for Cedar Waxwing feeding on wild berries.

This is a good spot to see migrating spring warblers. As the road makes the transition from reverting farmland to mature forest, look and listen for Northern Cardinal. Pileated and other woodpeckers are seen here, as are Ruffed Grouse and American Woodcock. Knight Pond is a breeding site for Canada Goose, Common Loon, and a number of ducks. Osprey glide over the pond, seeking bass and pickerel."
