Beautiful Everglades Birds

The Everglades are beautiful throughout the year, but once fall comes, the native birds leave the rookeries and start frequenting their regular stops in Everglades City, Chokoloskee, and the surrounding areas. Migratory birds have started arriving too. We have spotted an eastern phoebe, painted bunting, rose-breasted grosbeak, numerous warblers, and several American kestrels. Every day more and more migratory birds are showing up.

Fall is a perfect time to get some stone crabs, a side of mustard sauce, grab your binoculars and check out the sights.
