Here's what people are saying about our birding adventures...
“The Southwest Florida birding program was wonderful. We saw almost 100 different bird species and went to a variety of habitats in the area. The Road Scholar accommodations were excellent and the food was good too. Our instructor was extraordinary with her vast knowledge of the area, her kind personality, and her successful efforts to keep us “birders” on schedule. I highly recommend this program to any level of bird watching!”
“This was an exciting program. We saw over 100 bird species and I became very comfortable identifying shore birds which have always been difficult for me. Most of the other participants were like me, “casual, but interested” birders. The instructors were enthusiastic about teaching and were not at all intimidating.”
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.
