Description:
Beus Pond is a small wooded pond in Beus Forest Green Park located in east Ogden at the feet of the Wasatch Mountains.  The riparian area surrounding the pond creates somewhat of a migrant trap, given the location on the edge of the mountains.

Birding:
The pond is really known for its resident population of WOOD DUCKS that are present year round.  For a number of years MANDARIN DUCKS have also been present year round.  Other waterfowl and waterbirds also use the small pond and various songbirds use the surrounding woodlands. VARIED THRUSH and WORM-EATING WARBLER have both been recorded here..  A small path walks around the pond and through the woods.  For more information on the birds of the park check out the Beus Forest Green Park page.

Directions:
From Harrison Blvd in Ogden, take 40th S/Country Hills Drive, eastbound for .6 miles and turn into the parking are on your right.
