Plymouth Pond

Plymouth Pond Professional Review and Guide

"Plymouth Pond incorporates many of the attributes necessary for a successful birding trip, including easy access, a long viewing season, and plenty of interesting birds. The 0.7-mile-long causeway allows for a leisurely walk along the pond on one side and a sedge meadow on the other. A public boat launch on a gravel bar and a parking area midway along the causeway (east side) allow for easy launching of a canoe.

The culvert is large enough to allow most watercraft to pass through. Plymouth Pond is an excellent waterfowl site as well as a place to view marshbirds. The latter include American Bittern, Virginia Rail, Wilson’s Snipe, and Black Tern. Marsh Wren, another desirable addition to any birder’s life list, are found here. Other birds include Red-winged Blackbird, Belted Kingfisher, Northern Harrier, Pied-billed Grebe, Common Loon, and Great Blue Heron. Other wading birds are always possible, as are Osprey."
