UPPER KEYS NATURE ADVENTURE - 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. - ($90)
Although we will be looking for birds this trip, it will be a nature adventure to the only sub-tropical coral reefs in the U.S. We will drive across the beautiful Card Sound to North Key Largo for our best chance for White-crowned Pigeon and Cuban Yellow Warbler. It will include a short hike in the one of the U.S.’s most endangered habitats - tropical hardwood forest, home to 3 native endemics. It’s possible that Magnificent Frigatebird, Peregrine Falcon or Naday Parakeet may fly by. A late lunch (on your own) at the world’s famous Alabama Jack’s waterfront restaurant for conch fritters & chowder to get the real atmosphere of the Keys. It is a great way to end the festival. ($90) Field trip includes van transportation, bottle water, snacks and park admission.
Target Birds - Magnificent Frigatebird, White-crowned Pigeon, Cuban Yellow Warbler, Mangrove Cuckoo, Broadwing Hawk, Peregrine Falcon, Naday Parakeet
