DuPage County

Pella Ponds

6 ponds in a mostly deserted corporate complex. The blue marker notes the pond known as “Pella Pond”, because of it’s proximity to the Pella Window plant to the west. This pond, and the 5 to the north of Fabyan Parkway can be very good for migrating waterfowl, especially geese. Ross’, Greater White-fronted and Cackling Geese are seen here regularly. Eared Grebe has been seen here as well, and most of the expected waterfowl can be found here in season. The large open field to the southwest of the marker has had Northern Harrier, Rough-legged Hawk and Snowy Owl.
