Florida is on the Atlantic Coast flyway for migrating birds going between the Artic and tropical environments. Many migrants either cross the Gulf of Mexico on its western side or fly around it during migration. Because of its warm climate year round many birds are residents. Between the Everglades and the panhandle birds find a wide range of desirable habitats: salt marshes, sandy beaches, pinelands, sawgrass marsh, mangrove forests, hardwood hammocks, cypress swamps, and more. Planning a Florida ecotourism adventure for your next vacation? The Great Florida Birding Trail documents some of the best bird and wildlife watching in the state. Stop first on this website at Birding Florida to see what special events are planned for this coming year.
