Florida Bird Watching Tours

Join us for some of the best bird watching tours in all of Central Florida. With Kenny Boyd as your bird watching guide you are in for a real treat! He speaks fluent Barred Owl and like Dr. Seuss communicates with many more. Our sub-tropical climate is a birder's dream. It is perfect for the tropical birds that thrive near the Orlando area and the preserves in which we offer our bird watching tours are havens for several rare birds as well.

In addition to our resident population there are massive amounts of rare birds and tropical birds that migrate through Central Florida. Since we are a peninsula, this makes for unique bird watching which is different from other areas in the United States. As Birders we put together these bird watching tours so you can experience some of the rare and tropical birds we see on a daily basis. 

Our lead guide Kenny has an uncanny intuition and an exceptional eye for finding the birdlife. Whether you are looking to check a few rare birds off your life list such as the Scrub-Jay or doing a big year and need to include some of the unique tropical birds, the Prothonotary Warbler, Limpkin, Purple Gallinule, Anhinga and Tri-colored Herons will brighten your day.

Known as the ultimate soaring machine, the Swallow-tailed Kites are rare birds that show up in March and spend the entire Summer here. Changing with the time of year there is always something new to see on our bird watching tours. Grab your camera, bring your binoculars it's a magnificent sight!
