A major stopover on the Eastern Flyway and the unique, myriad subtropical ecosystems makes the region around Sarasota a premier birding destination in the United States. With expert ornithologists, explore brackish estuaries, scrublands, mangrove forests, marshes and sandy islands as you increase your list of bird-species sightings. Observe the rare Florida subspecies of Scrub Jay and unique birds such as the Marbled Godwit, Reddish Egret and Long-billed Curlew, all amid the warm-weather splendor of Florida’s Gulf Coast.
