US-35 @ OH-72 Pond (view from roadside only)

US-35 Eastbound Exit Ramp Jamestown, Ohio 45335

Tips for Birding

This pond may be viewed from a pull-off on the eastbound US-35 exit ramp at the OH-72 exit. It is a winter location that gets a number of personal locations every year, so I suggested it as an eBird hotspot to better organize the reports. The exit has a dedicated pull-off that is safe to hop out with a scope. I even had a state trooper ask what I was doing and he seemed happy that I was out looking at the ducks and geese and drove off no other questions asked.

The pinned location for the hotspot is the exact spot for people to stand and scan with a scope. This pull-off is the only vantage point of the body of water.
