Other winter visitors include catbirds, phoebes and <strong>ruby-crowned ringlets</strong>. <br /> <br /> Corkscrew Swamp also is home to </font>the <strong>largest</strong> remaining sub-tropical <strong>old-growth bald-cypress forest</strong> in the United States. <br /> <br /> Bald cypress here tower 130-feet high and are as much as 700 years old. These are the <strong>oldest trees</strong> in all of <strong>eastern North America</strong>.<br /> <br /> To locate Corkscrew Swamp, take Exit 17 from I-75 and go east on State Road 846 for about 16 miles. A sign leading to the swamp will be on the left. The facility opens at 7 a.m. December through April, and at 8 a.m. May through November. The boardwalk closes at 5 p.m. year-round. </font></p> <p><span class="text1"><em>More information:</em> <strong><a href="http://www.corkscrew.audubon.org/" target="_blank">Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary</a></strong>, National Audubon Society, Route 6, Box 1875-A, Naples, FL 33964; 813/657-3771</span><br /> <br /> <span class="text1"><strong>Return to</strong></span> <a href="index.html"><strong>Florida Birding Homepage</strong></a> </p> </p> </font></p> </p> </p> </p> <p><script type="text/javascript"><!-- google_ad_client = "ca-pub-9308523075932718"; /* Medium Rectangle */ google_ad_slot = "9853755015"; google_ad_width = 300; google_ad_height = 250; //--> </script> <script type="text/javascript" src="http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/show_ads.js"> </script> <!-- InstanceEndEditable --> <tr> <td valign="top"><div align="center"> <BeginEditable name="rt box 2"> <script async src="https://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js?client=ca-pub-9308523075932718" crossorigin="anonymous"></script> <ins class="adsbygoogle" style="display:block" data-ad-client="ca-pub-9308523075932718" data-ad-slot="5871296593" data-ad-format="auto" data-full-width-responsive="true"></ins> <script> (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); </script> <EndEditable Rt Box 2> </div></td> </tr> <tr> <td valign="top"><div align="center"><!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="rt box 3" --><!-- InstanceEndEditable --> </div></td> </tr> <tr> <td valign="top"><div align="center"><!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="rt box 4" --> <!-- InstanceEndEditable -->  </div></td> </tr> <tr> <td valign="top"><!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="rt box 5" --> <!-- InstanceEndEditable -->  </td> </tr> <tr></tr> </table> </div> <p class="class1" style="margin-bottom: 0">  </K--> <script language="JavaScript1.2"> /* Disable right click script II (on images)- By Dynamicdrive.com For full source, Terms of service, and 100s DTHML scripts Visit http://www.dynamicdrive.com */ var clickmessage="Please contact me to license my pictures." function disableclick(e) { if (document.all) { if (event.button==2||event.button==3) { if (event.srcElement.tagName=="IMG"){ alert(clickmessage); return false; } } } else if (document.layers) { if (e.which == 3) { alert(clickmessage); return false; } } else if (document.getElementById){ if (e.which==3&&e.target.tagName=="IMG"){ alert(clickmessage) return false } } } function associateimages(){ for(i=0;i<document.images.length;i++) document.images[i].onmousedown=disableclick; } if (document.all) document.onmousedown=disableclick else if (document.getElementById) document.onmouseup=disableclick else if (document.layers) associateimages() </script> </body> <!-- InstanceEnd --></html>
