Hi Susan, Yes, as Colleen stated, generally the best viewing is from behind that strip mall (Dunkin on one end, Zack’s on the other). And morning light is best from there; afternoon you’re looking into the sun to the west. A spotting scope is often helpful too.

It’s been a good spot for me for the hooded mergansers in the past but the canvasbacks always seem to be on the opposite side when I’ve been there over the years. I haven’t been this month yet.

This morning I stood in the weeds & stepped over bottles at a muddy pullover on Access Road, but surely there's a better (and safer from traffic) place! What do you recommend? I'd appreciate any advice.
