The Village Pines

This area of clumped pine trees and scrub is to be found on the northwest side of Lake Law, just west of the Red Barn. In general this area and the other similar pine clusters on site are not particularly productive. However, in winter they do provide good roosting areas for owls. In particular the village pines are probably the most reliable place on site to find Long-eared Owls. Other interesting wintering species such as Cooper's Hawks and Red-breasted Nuthatches are also possible. In 2001, a similar group of pines to the north of the village produced a Yellow Grosbeak on a Christmas Bird Count.
