Lamica Lake has undeveloped areas surrounding the lake which provide a quiet, undisturbed setting for many native birds. There's wonderful river scenery downstream of the Macomb Dam, where the Salmon River flows into a deep, stony, gorge.
Birders can check out the water for ducks like Common Mergansers, but the neighboring woodlands and edge habitat is also interesting. Birders can look for Veery, Chestnut-sided and Yellow Warblers, American Redstart, and Broad-winged Hawk, among others. The road can be busy so it is best to go early in the morning.
This spot is located just north of Malone where Lower Park Street creates a dogleg with Brand Road, where it crosses the Salmon River at Lamica Lake. Watch out for traffic.
