A J Henry Park

A. J. Henry Park is a small city property with some nice topography and habitats, including hardwood forest-covered slopes which descend down to a lake. Raptors like Mississippi Kite and Broad-winged Hawk hunt for prey here in late spring and summer, and Blue-winged Teal, Ring-necked Duck and the occasional Common Goldeneye can be found on the lake in winter. Look for Limpkin (uncommon), Green Heron and White Ibis from the fishing platforms. The area surrounding the lake and the lower (north) parking area offers the most productive birding. In winter, Hermit Thrushes hop around in the leaf litter and American Goldfinches feed on sweet gum seeds. Extensive trails at the upper (south) parking area are worth exploring during spring and fall migration; Yellow-throated Vireos, Magnolia Warblers and American Redstarts are regularly found.
