"Scenes such as this are a beautiful sight - like a special gift of nature. This picture exemplifies just a few of the various species of both native and migrating birds that are dependent on wetland ponds and marshes for survival. Fresh water wetlands are important sources of drinking water and food for all kinds of wildlife, even those we associate with salt water bays. Salt marshes and brackish marshes occur along the coastline and serve valuable functions including protecting the shoreline from erosion, providing nursery habitat for juvenile fish species, and feeding and nesting habitat for shorebirds, wading birds and waterfowl. If the birds could speak, they would surely thank the owner of this protected privately owned pond." - Jane Willard
