Along the southern shore of Lake Ontario, there are many small bays. It’s an interesting habitat. Some of the bays only connect to the lake seasonally, when the lake level is high enough to cover the shallow channels to the bays. Braddock Bay is almost half covered with cat tails. The ground has become a spongy mass of previous years’ plants. It’s a perfect habitat for migratory birds. I’ll stop by this fall a couple times to get more pictures. We mostly saw sparrows while we were there. I guess it’s the wrong time of year. We had a nice walk, though.
The boardwalk juts a long way out into the bay. Not quite past the rushes, though. It’s closed during some parts of the year to protect the rushes from intrusion during migration and nesting.
