Swan Pond has been a favorite birding spot for some years, with many rare or unusual birds being spotted on the ash ponds. I've always questioned whether this was a good thing or a bad thing for the birds. Here's hoping that we get some sort of wetlands restored when this is over. We're missing an island and some large shallow coves as it is now.

Rare and/or unusual species reported at Kingston Steam Plant include Piping Plover, American Avocet, Baird's Sandpiper, Ruff, Whimbrel, Hudsonian Godwit, Marbled Godwit, Red Knot, Red-necked Phalarope, Franklin's Gull, Nelson's Sharp-tailed Sparrow, and Snow Bunting.
