At the back of this ballpark are nature trails winding through xeric oak hammock, down to the edge of the South Fork of the St. Lucie River. This site is can be good during spring and fall migration, as well as in winter, for roving mixed feeding flocks of songbirds like Northern Parulas and Black-and-white Warblers. The trail system is extensive, so stick to the river trails where birds are most likely to follow the ecotone between habitat types. Keep an eye on the skies above as you walk the trails; Swallow-tailed Kites can be seen between spring and early fall and Short-tailed Hawks are occasionally sighted.
