Shoreline Park South is a small sound-side park in Gulf Breeze, which lies between Fort Pickens and the mainland as the bird flies. This makes it the perfect arrival and departure point for migrants coming in off the Gulf in spring and heading out across the Gulf in fall. Near the entrance, bird the loop trails through oak hammock excellent for resident Pine Warblers, Carolina Chickadees and Pileated Woodpeckers, as well as migrant Magnolia and Worm-eating Warblers, Swainson’s Thrushes, Orchard Orioles, Blue Grosbeaks and Indigo Buntings. In winter, bird the waterfront for Horned Grebe and Common Loons; Pacific and Red-throated Loons have been recorded. Wintering ducks like Lesser Scaup, Bufflehead and the occasional Common Goldeneye can be viewed from the pier and viewing deck. This site is busy on warm weather weekends. Amenities include a boardwalk nature trail, waterfront boardwalk, picnic shelters and restrooms. Many park features are handicapped accessible.
