Site Description and Birding Information: Off the end of Chemin Wilfred-Lépine, behind the millworks, is a lovely marshy pond which can have waterfowl, marsh birds or shorebirds in season. One of the better spots for shorebirds on the Quebec side of the river. An American Golden Plover was seen here Sep. 22, 2001.
