Bird Watching On Matlacha

Florida is the mecca for bird watching. So your in luck bird lovers. We took the time to gather some highly subjective hot spots for bird photography in the southwest Florida area.

Pine Island, Matlacha, Bokeelia and St. James City are wonderful places to photograph shorebirds, seabirds, and wading birds, but make sure you go at low tide, or you will find few if any birds.

Finding Reddish Egrets, Little Blue Herons, Black-Bellied Plovers, Long-Billed Curlews, Piping Plovers, Marbled Godwits, Black Skimmers, Red-Breasted Mergansers, Osprey, White Pelicans, Brown Pelicans, and many kinds of birds have appeared. In most cases you can also find Bald Eagles, Roseate Spoonbills, and Peregrine Falcons here. You never know what you will find.
