Stop and ScanSITE DESCRIPTION:  Lake Worth is a small but inviting park with short walking trails through pine/oak uplands and cedar lowlands leading to scenic pond. The park is located along a tributary to Big Timber Creek and hosts year-round suburban wildlife, migrating songbirds and waterfowl in certain seasons.

DON'T MISS:  Visit the lake in October and November for the chance to see interesting waterfowl up close.

Winter:  Scan the lake for Mallard and Canada Goose. Follow the trail Left to the holly grove to find Hermit Thrush, Cardinal, Carolina Wren, Dark-eyed Junco, White-throated Sparrow and other wintering songbirds. Listen for the rattling call of Belted Kingfisher, which sometimes visits to fish from bare branches over the lake.
Spring:  Yellow-rumped and Pine Warblers can be found in the woods among other migrating songbirds. Listen for spring peepers and Fowler's toad. Lycopodium and mosses sprout around the pond edges.
Summer:  Dragonflies hover over the water's surface. Red-bellied turtles bask on logs and on the Banks of the pond. Listen for Red-bellied woodpecker, Gray Catbird, Carolina Chickadee, Tufted Titmouse and other breeding birds in the woods.
Fall:  Gray squirrels clamber in the trees. Migrating songbirds fatten up on seeds and berries. Look for waterfowl such as Pied-billed Grebe, Ring-necked Duck, Ruddy Duck, Hooded Merganser and Double-crested Cormorant stopping over on the lake.
