Kingfishers! Egrets! Great Horned Owls! Waterfowl abound. The air is always filled with bird songs here. There is a brand new loop trail added to the little park, and a viewing platform offering views of the wetlands, estuary, sand bar, and gobs of shorebirds. Please note that dogs are no longer allowed in the Preserve in order to protect the birds.
