Birding Southwest Florida
SWFL Bird Trails Nature Viewing Birdwatching Areas Audubon Society
Welcome to beautiful Southwest Florida – the Paradise Coast is a fantastic place to go birding. The Great Florida Birding Trail offers easy-to-access birding opportunities, nature walks, and Audubon Society Sanctuary Boardwalks.
Birding in Florida’s Paradise Coast is full of surprises with nearly 200 species of birds flying, living, and visiting southwest Florida. Corkscrew Sanctuary in Immokalee is a breeding ground for wood storks and other migrating birds.
Bird Florida – and be prepared for a “fall-out” – a sudden arrival of migratory birds that will suddenly descend on a particular area. This phenomenon can be startling but provides for an unforgettable birding experience.
Southwest Florida locations for birdwatching are unmatched in the US and are one of the top birding locations in the world. Enjoy our Florida Birding suggestions and thank you for visiting. Share your Florida business in Paradise Coast Living, contact us.
