The Adagio Apartments Pond is a long and narrow pond on the grounds of the Adagio Apartments in Draper city, The pond is surrounded by open lawn with scattered trees, and apartments to the north and south. A small riparian patch on the east end adds tom decent passerine habitat. The pond lies on the apartment property so you may need to ask for permission to bird the pond from the property side. You can however view it from the street on 150 East.
The Adagio Apartments Pond really got noticed in May 2012 when a TRUMPETER SWAN showed up. There was some question to the provenance of the bird and I was able to photo what looked like wings that had been clipped at one point. However, the fre-flying swan was gone within several days showing it could make it on its own. Aside from the week of attention this location brought, birders usually don't stop here, but I have started driving by about once a month to check things out. CALIFORNIA GULLS, MALLARDS, and CANADA GEESE are going to be the common species here. Late spring and summer bring other possible waterbirds like AMERICAN WHITE PELICAN, and AMERICAN AVOCET. Of course water in the city scape always has the possibility to turn something interesting up. With a little more coverage the bird list here will probably grow to include most of the regularly occurring aquatic avian species found at other ponds in nearby Sandy and Draper.
