Southwest Florida is a known hot spot for bird photography. It’s an especially good place to photograph birds during the winter and spring migrations.
Florida is a terrific location for wading birds, shore birds, migrating song birds, raptors, and even birds such as the Florida Scrub Jay or White-crowned Pigeon that are only found in the area.
In this blog post, I provide information and links to some of my favorite Southwest Florida bird photography hot spots. I typically photograph birds in Florida during that winter months and in numerous trips I’ve researched and photographed some of the best areas in Southwest Florida.
That said, I’m sure I didn’t photograph all the best spots. If you have a favorite bird photography spot in Southwest Florida, leave a comment or send us an email and we’ll check it out and add it to the blog.
