This is a not well known birding and animal watching paradise, in the middle of a vast, open expanse of land, water, and open air.

Take Route 30 south out of Tupper Lake Village, to an area where Simon Pond meets the Route 30 highway bridge. Birds and mammals of Tupper Lake Marsh, also known as Moody Marsh, and the surrounding Greater Raquette River Wetland Complex include, among many, loons, pied-billed grebes, American bitterns, Great Blue Herons, Wood Ducks, ospreys, eagles, owls, deer, fishers, beaver, otters and mink.
