This is a neighborhood park for us. It is a very good location to see warblers in fall thru spring. We were very lucky this morning and saw several indigo buntings as well as three male scarlet tanagers! Kingfishers and carolina wrens can also be found here.

I actually saw one of the elusive gopher tortoises here! So sad that people pour gasoline and other noxious substances into their holes attempting to kill snakes. My boyfriend got a kick out of the "drowning alien" signs along the water. The area must have a high incidence of visitors from outer space drowning to post "No Swimming" signs just for them.
