The Raptors of Southwest Florida

Barred Owl, Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary

Click to view the Raptors Gallery

Many photographers are fascinated by the fierce ruthlessness of raptors, and there are many of these secretive species which frequent our area. We will be traveling to several different habitats to find barred owls, osprey, burrowing owls, bald eagles, red shouldered hawks and if lucky, great horned owls. American kestrels and caracara are also spotted occasionally. The tour will begin at first light and, most likely, will cover Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary to the north, as well as Marco Island to the south. Because of driving times between the most productive areas, this tour is an all day tour. We will break for lunch along the way.

Water will be provided.
