Indiantown Park

Description

This 52 acre, mixed use county park provides good woodland habitat for spring and fall migrant songbirds. The park’s lengthy 36-hole disc golf course, found on either side of the open fields, provide an enjoyable walk that may be used for birding in the woodlands.  Look for prairie warblers singing along the margin of the park in the tall shrubs, white-eyed vireos singing in the understory, and orchard oriole and eastern bluebirds along open area edges in summer. The park’s woodlands and weedy margins also attract a variety of colorful insects including butterflies and the furtive forktail, a tiny but colorful damselfly that is quite rare in the southeastern U.S.
