Birding in Sanibel and Florida Everglades

Unique birding programs designed for travelers age 50+!

Discover diverse birding habitats in the Western Everglades and Caloosahatchee Watershed. Boardwalks, beach paths and hiking trails help us penetrate swamps, pines, oak hammocks and mangrove forests to see wintering birds and native breeders. Twenty species of wading birds call southwest Florida home, in addition to a variety of birds of prey, including Bald Eagles, Swallow-tailed Kites and the endangered Snail Kite. Purple Gallinules and eastern Burrowing Owls are our rarer natives.
