Florida is unique among the 50 states with its geology, geography, flora, and fauna offering a fascinating mix of north and south, with a flavor of the Caribbean, and a major flyway for Neotropical migrants. This short and relaxed tour combs through Southern Florida’s highlights with visits to world-famous Everglades, the beautiful Keys, the central pine barrens, and the remote Dry Tortugas. The Everglades are a one-of-a-kind natural wonder among southern Florida’s many wild treasures, and the Keys offer spectacular beaches plus unique hardwood hammocks home to numerous bird specialties. We will also spend a day in the Dry Tortugas amidst spectacular seabirds, and we will witness the heartbeat of the Spring migration here. Even within the greater Miami area nature still survives and thrives among burgeoning development, and we will visit local migrant hotspots and seek some of the ABA countable exotic species (always a fun and interesting venture).
