Birding at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary
This Audubon facility is near Naples, FL
The Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary and its 2.5-mile boardwalk are most famous for their nesting wood storks but there is much more to see here.
Another 200 bird species, including the largest of Florida's common woodpeckers, the pileated, with its red crest and black and white feather pattern.
Cardinals, too, are common, and look for white ibis, green herons, anhingas, great blue herons and limpkins. Other winter visitors include catbirds, phoebes and ruby-crowned ringlets.
And don't overlook the guided walks that include early bird walks, old growth forest walks and swamp slogs through the remarkable area.
