BIRD WATCHING ON HORN POND MOUNTAIN

Horn Pond Mountain and the power lines leading to it provide an ideal spot in late Spring to search for Eastern Bluebird (below), Prairie Warbler, Field Sparrow, Indigo Bunting, and Eastern Towhee. These birds can be found in the open, secondary growth created by the constant cutting and regrowth. The mature deciduous woods provide a great location for Downey Woodpecker, Hairy Woodpecker, Red-bellied Woodpecker, Northern Flicker and most recently Red Headed Woodpecker.
