If you are coming to Florida to do some birding this winter, check out the Florida Birding Trail website. It will tell you what you will see and where to find it.
Lee County Conservation 20/20 is steward to 47 preserves that are great birding areas. Check out their website that includes a description of each preserve, maps, directions and a calendar of events. Several preserves have free guided walks.
A trip to Sanibel would not be complete without a visit to the J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge. Website includes an overview of the Refuge and visitor information on times and directions. NOTE: Wildlife Drive is closed on Fridays.
Visit our Facebook page for birding photos and tips.
This private group's purpose is: to facilitate the enjoyment and study of birds in their natural environment on Sanibel and Captiva and at other nearby parks and nature preserves. (Our 2021 bird walks were all conducted virtually; photos can be found on our Facebook page.)
