The Port Kent Ferry Terminal offers another good place to check out Lake Champlain and is most productive during the cold months.
How to get there
From the main intersection in Keeseville, head east on Main Street toward Kent Street and take a left. After 2 miles, merge onto Route 373. Follow this for just under two miles to the ferry terminal.
There are a variety of ducks that may over winter or migrate through, and the ferry terminal provides easy parking and access to the water. And don’t skip over the train station at the top of the hill, which overlooks the lake, giving good views at the birds below. Look for Common Goldeneye, Common Merganser, Greater and Lesser Scaup, and Ring-necked Ducks, among others. Eastern Kingbirds are fun summer visitors.
