Basic Florida Tour Option

Bay-breasted Warbler

Spring Migration Trip to Fort DeSoto Park

April 13, 2021 7:30AM-3:00PM

 Cost: $35.00 per person (Includes Entry Fee, Water, and Light Snacks)

Join Archaeopteryx Birding & Nature Tours on a spring migration field trip to Fort De Soto Park in Pinellas county. From the oak hammock picnic and camping areas, to the mulberry trees, and beaches, we’ll be sure to find some amazing birds just returning to spend the breeding season in North America. You never know what you may see, but Kentucky, Blue-winged, Worm-eating, Hooded, and Bay-breasted Warblers are likely as well as Summer and Scarlet Tanagers, Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, and Swainson’s and Wood Thrush. On the beach side we’ll look for Wilson’s and Piping Plover, Whimbrel, Marbled Godwit, Nanday Parakeets, and Least Terns. There are always surprises when migration season is under way. We may even have a chance to see fallout depending on weather conditions, or the more rare Golden-winged, Cerulean, or Blackburnian Warblers. We’ll break for lunch at Philadeli (a restaurant with sandwiches, cheesesteaks, and vegan/veggie options right outside the park).
The fee for this field trip will be $35 per person which includes the park entry fee, water & light snacks, and a shared ebird checklist at the end of the day. Minimum of 3 people for this field trip with a maximum of 10. There will be some hiking involved in this field trip of up to 3 miles for the duration of the day.
