Birding at Ft. Pickens can yield a wonderful array of both resident and migrant species under the right conditions! You can anticipate easy walking and good opportunities to view a variety of species this time of year with leader Daniel Stangeland. Meet at 7:30 a.m. Meet across the street from Park West On the Beach, 1229 Ft. Pickens Road, Pensacola Beach, FL. If you have a visitors pass, be sure to bring it. We will finish by noon. You may wish to bring a picnic lunch along with water or snacks for the morning.
Field trips are open to the public and free of charge, but contributions are appreciated. All experience levels are welcome. Bring binoculars and/or a spotting scope. Sunscreen, insect protection, appropriate shoes, hat, water, and snacks or lunch are recommended on all trips. Please refrain from wearing scented cologne, perfumes or aftershave on field trips. It distracts from the experience in nature, and some participants are highly sensitive to it. Carpooling is encouraged.
