This complex of ball fields yields more birds than you might think, due in large part to the adjacent lake and nature trail. On the lake on the east side of the complex, check for wintering ducks like Ring-necked and Lesser Scaup. Next, follow the trail east of the lake, along the boardwalk through a small bayhead. Some large trees in this mature wetland hammock make for interesting flocks of migrants in October and April. Brushy areas north of the lake, and on the west and south perimeters of the complex may be good for wintering sparrows. Loaner optics and field guides are available. Vermilion Flycatchers have wintered at this site in recent years.
