The park contains the largest remaining fragments of rockland hammock in the continental United States. Once a dominant habitat type in the Florida Keys and southern tip of Florida's peninsula, this West Indian plant community was originally established largely by migratory birds. Northbound migrant songbirds, having fed on the fruits of trees and shrubs in the Bahamas, Greater Antilles, and Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico, often carry seeds in their digestive tract. Many tropical species are resident here, including the white-crowned pigeon, mangrove cuckoo and black-whiskered vireo. Tropical vagrants such as the thick-billed vireo and La Sagra's flycatcher are frequently reported in the park.

The birds feed and rest on shallow sand flats during low tide on the oceanside of the island. An assortment of shorebirds such as Ruddy Turnstones, Willets, Plovers, Sanderlings, and Short-billed Dowitchers may be seen feeding and resting along the shore. There are also several species of wading birds such as Great Blue Herons, Great Egrets, White Ibis, Great White Herons, and Snowy Egrets.

City of Key West, Florida
Key West lies near the end of the chain of islands known as the Florida Keys, and is the southern-most city in the continental United States. The island-community is located about 90 miles north of Cuba. Key West's long and colorful past begins with its European discovery in 1513 by Ponce de Leon. The island was first known as Cayo Hueso (Isle of Bones) because it was littered with remains from an Indian battlefield or burial ground. The name 'Key West' is the English version of the Spanish term. The first permanent occupancy in the City occurred in 1822, complete with a small naval depot, whose purpose was to rid the area of pirates.

Point of Information, parking downtown for big R V rigs is difficult. We found that to visit downtown, we parked in the Malls on the north end of town and used the excellent city bus service that comes right to the main Mall entrance doorway.
