Birding

This county park borders the Patuxent River and Mill Creek. Lots of scrub/shrub habitat make it a great nesting area for yellow-breasted chats, prairie warblers, and white-eyed vireos. Numerous trails lead to all points in the park. From Solomons take Rt. 4 across the Patuxent River and turn right onto Patuxent Blvd. Follow to the end where you will find the gates to the park.
