Meet at the ranger’s station under the big flag when you enter the park. Join Clearwater Audubon Society on a great birdwatching trip to Fort De Soto. Did you know that this huge park has a tremendous variety of migratory songbirds, raptors, water and shore birds? Its prime location makes it the first stop for migrants from South and Central America. It is full of natural beauty and surprises. This includes birding the causeway and shoreline drive in addition to walking about 2 miles on Tampa Bay’s north shore.Bring your binoculars and field guides if you have them!
