Kimogener Point / Inlet Pond Park



Kimogener Point is a beautiful spot located at the head of West Creek where the estuary meets the Great Peconic Bay in New Suffolk.  It has it's own protected harbor where the residents dock their boats for the season.  The creek is an excellent place to clam in the shallows and at night, with the aid of a powerful flashlight, attract and catch blue crabs with nets under the bridge.  The estuary is home to many species of birds, most noticeably osprey, and water fowl.  It remains in pristine condition due to it's protected wetland status.  What a great place to call home.




I'm including two photos that were taken at Inlet Pond Park to show the construction of an osprey nest and a sitting adolescent.

On the opposite coast from you, I, too, travel by an osprey nest on my way to and from work each day. Nature connects us once again. Thank you for your lovely photos.

What a wonderful, wonderful place! I usually hear osprey calling overhead every day, but am visiting in central Maine right now and have traded the osprey for a broadwinged hawk family! It's so cool. ~karen

Such a beautiful place! And the osprey nest is fascinating. I like it that the humans here are actually helping, rather than destroying them.
