Loons & Other Birds of Torsey

There are many types of birds inhabiting the waters, shorelands and woods of Torsey Pond. Most are seasonal in their stay, but a few are year-round residents; all of them however, add to the natural experience of Torsey Pond with their different colorations, their varying calls and their individual patterns and behavior. Torsey Pond provides many opportunities for the wild bird watcher.
