Experience the magic of getting up-close to some of the rarest species on the planet on our Florida Birds Tour. BK Adventure takes you to the rookeries of the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge on Florida’s Space Coast to Mullett Head Island. There you can see Roseate Spoonbills, Swallowed Tailed Kites, White Pelicans, Limpkins, Anhinga, rare Florida Scrub Jays, and occasionally even a Bachman’s Sparrow. (Jays and sparrows are not shorebirds, so those are likely to be seen in the surrounding forests.) Unlike birding tours that have you walking through forests, this tour takes you by kayak to islands and mangrove forests. This allows you to get up close to the birds for great photographs. This Florida birding adventure is a must-do for anyone who loves birds, and those who want to experience the best of Florida’s wildlife.
When to go: Florida birds can be seen year round. The best time for migratory birds is January thru April. However, birds like the Roseate Spoonbill, Swallow-tailed Kite, Herons, Anhinga, and Pelicans are present year round.
