Roxbury Park is home to the Least Killifish, the smallest species of fish in North America, and one of the smallest vertebrates in the world. Read more here.
Sea Ox-eye Daisey
This is currently the most common wildlfower in the park. You will find it blooming along the trail all around the big pond, and even out into the tidal marsh. It is a favorite of a wide variety of pollinators so llok for butterflies, and a diverse assortment of bees and wasps.
Once listed as an endangered species, in June 2014, they were upgraded to "threatened" . . . which is still very serious. We are fortunate that Roxbury Park is a place where these magnificent birds love to perch during the day. They can also be seen feeding in the creek near the cottage at low tide. Many people refer to them as the most beautiful ugly bird in the world. They have no feathers on their heads, and are in fact closley related to vultures.
Check out this recording of a strange sounding creature that was heard in the swamp at thesoutheast corner of the park. Turns out that it was nothing more than a "variant call" of a female Wood Duck.
