Florida Birding Tours

Birding in Central Florida is a bird watcher's dream. Our sub-tropical climate and the preserves in which we bird watch are havens for species that are indigenous to this region and the massive amounts of birds that migrate here. As Birders ourselves we put together these Birder's Paradise tours so you can experience some of the best birding spots near Merritt Island, Orlando, Daytona Beach and The Villages. 

Our lead guide Kenny has an uncanny intuition and an exceptional eye for finding the birdlife. Whether you are looking to check a few off your life list or doing a big year, the Prothonotary Warbler, Northern Parula and Tri-colored Herons will brighten your day. The ultimate soaring machine, the Swallow-tailed Kite shows up in March and spends the entire Summer here. Grab your camera bring your binoculars it's a magnificent sight!
