This park provides short driving loop along a mangrove coastline
that features mangrove-fringed lagoons and tidal flats. Two county
parks provide access to the Anclote River and Gulf of Mexico.
Low tide is the best time to see the many egrets, herons, and
shorebirds, which include short-billed dowitchers and several
plovers during the winter. Bald eagles nest along Bailey's Bluff
road December through May. Ospreys, gulls, terns, and
double-crested cormorants are often seen fishing in nearshore
waters. Scan the marshes carefully with binoculars to see rails,
white ibis, and night herons. Magnificent frigate birds are
sometimes seen high over the water from May through October.
