This shoreline location is well-situated to observe sweeping shorelines on both sides of Lake Champlain. In spring and fall, the lake becomes a migratory highway which funnels traffic between the Adirondack Mountains to the west, and the Green Mountains to the east.
Expect to see common goldeneye, common merganser, hooded merganser, greater and lesser scaup, Canada geese, and black brant. Green herons move to their breeding ranges during March and April, and leave to move south between September and October.
Nearby Fort Ticonderoga is only minutes away, but offers a boreal forest habitat to see grosbeaks, orioles, and warblers.
