Mondo Ponds Nature Preserve is located in Milford, only minutes from I-95 and dozens of other highly valued birding venues.

Images presented in this blog article were capture on a pair of visits made to the trail, one in late October and one in late November.

While the preserve constitutes nearly 36 acres, I would make my observations from one primary point overlooking the main pond behind the elementary school.

Once taking a gander at the waterfowl that seems omnipresent on the water’s surface, it pays to be looking skyward for bird activity flying overhead. eBird data indicates 181 species at this serene venue as of this writing.

A future visit will certainly allow for a more thorough exploration of the property. The trail appears to primarily offer views of the main pond, although the four other primary ponds appear to be accessible.
