PHOTOS: Good Day to Be a Duck on Marratooka Pond

Waterbirds occupied Mattituck lake Thursday afternoon.

Marratooka Pond is a very big pond across Route 25 from Mattituck High School and is home this time of year to dozens of waterbirds. Just like those out for a stroll around the lake this chilly but pretty Thursday afternoon, these ducks and geese enjoyed some swimming and flying at Marratooka.

Enjoy these pictures as the sunsets.

No problem, Cyn. Sometimes you can't help but stop for a few shots while driving by the big pond.

It's really beautiful at this time of year. I have heard that there is a place to ice skate in the winter near the lake. Is it the lake itself or some area nearby? Thanks.

Bryce - You might be thinking of Wolfpit Lake also in Mattituck, though the way the winters have been going lately I wouldn't recommend ice skating on any pond or lake until we get at least a month of deep freeze ...
