Expansive views over the farm lands of Crowley and the wetlands along the Myakka River offer both advanced and novice birders an enjoyable morning!

Dress in layers.

Later we will stop by Crowley to look for Red Headed Woodpeckers, Painted Bunting and a few other cool birds. Feel free to call with questions. Because of the potential for cancellation due to bad weather, please register.
