Pete Thayer's Favorite Hot Spots:
Corkscrew Swamp

26.37 N   81.60 W
A boardwalk through the swamp will let you get up close and personal with birds and other critters. Watch for Wood Stork and Limpkin.


Dry Tortugas
24.63 N   82.87 W
Fantastic in late April. Almost anything can show up inside Fort Jefferson during spring migration. Magnificent Frigatebirds and Brown Noddies nest nearby. Watch for Black Noddies. Bridled Terns are likely on the boat trip back to Key West.

Everglades National Park
25.15 N   80.50 W
Anhinga Trail, Snake Bight Trail, and Eco Pond. Watch for Roseate Spoonbill, Purple Gallinule and Short-tailed Hawk. Mosquitoes over 6 inches in length may be counted on your bird life list.


Florida Keys
24.42 N   81.23 W
Look for White-crowned Pigeon, Gray Kingbird and Mangrove Cuckoo as you bird your way down to Key West. Try the airport there at dusk for Antillean Nighthawk.


Fort Myers Beach/Estero
26.43 N   81.91 W
In back of the Holiday Inn is one of the best spots to photograph shorebirds in Florida. The lagoon and mudflats are full of interesting birds during migration and all winter long. Wade out to the Gulf beach. If the traffic to Sanibel Island makes you crazy, try visiting here instead. Go early before the sunbathers show up.

Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge
26.28 N   80.13 W
Purple Gallinule, Smooth-billed Ani and Limpkin are possible here. Try landfill at west end of 45th street in West Palm Beach for Snail Kite. Swing by Jonathan Dickinson State Park to see Florida Scrub-Jay.


Merrit Island National Wildlife Refuge
28.38 N   80.43 W
Where else can you see space shuttle launches and Mottled Duck at the same time? Over 150 species on the Christmas Bird Count including over 20 species of Ducks. Snowbirds welcome!


"Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge
26.46 N   82.06 W
Drive the loop to see Herons, Egrets, Roseate Spoonbills and alligators! BIG BIRDS that are RIGHT THERE! One of the top birding spots in North America. Take the kids and grandma. Eat lunch at the Mucky Duck. The causeway to Sanibel and roads on the island are a nightmare in winter. Get there early. (Check the woods around the lighthouse for passerines before you leave Sanibel.)


St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge
30.08 N   84.12 W
Red-cockaded Woodpecker country. Lots of waterfowl in the winter. Look for Wood Stork, Least Tern, Piping Plover and Budgerigar, too.
