While he found the best views from the metal bridge leading to the canoe and kayak storage area, we also had excellent views from the end of a boardwalk along one of the smaller floating wooden storage structures. We were looking south towards Valley Street. There was also a Song Sparrow present. The Swamp Sparrow popped in and out of the vegetation and ran along the shore, but we got good looks at it.
