Encompassing a mile of relatively unvisited Gulf shore, this is the perfect site in this county for uninterrupted beach birding. More common shoreline species are ubiquitous: Spotted Sandpiper, Willet, Dunlin and Black-bellied Plover. Across the street is a short trail through mangrove swamp that leads to a lagoon off of Lemon Bay Aquatic Preserve. Scan the mudflats at low tide for more shorebirds and watch the mangrove edges for wading birds, including reddish egret. Launch a canoe or kayak from the small ramp and spend some time floating the lagoon and bay.
