This once-private historic estate, including its surrounding mangrove forests, towering tropical hardwoods and remnant pine rockland, is now a public park. You can freely bird the immediate area around the historic buildings and grounds for migratory songbirds, Mangrove Cuckoo and White-crowned Pigeons. To see the rest of the more extensive property (and birds like Black-whiskered Vireo, Limpkin and more), join one of the natural area tours included in your admission fee. For earlier access, call ahead for monthly, early morning guided walks. Don’t forget to check the boat basin for plovers, and the occasional Manatee and/or American crocodile!
