Migratory birding at a classic local migrant hotspot. The big oaks and lakeshore cypresses in the park, and the hardwoods along Lakeshore Drive, can be excellent places to observe migrant activity.
Meet trip leader Barbara Shea at Powers Park to check the trees along the boat channel and scan the lake from the fishing pier before proceeding to Palm Point.
Difficulty: 1 (trip within easy access to the vehicle and/or level terrain one mile or less).
