Dry Tortugas Trip

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 25
7:00 am-5:15 pm — (25 max) ($25)
Leaders David Simpson, Paddy Cunningham

Yankee Freedom The Dry Tortugas is on every birders bucket list. There are many possibilities such as Masked Booby, Sooty Terns, Brown Noddy, Magnificent Frigatebird and more.  The fall season is a great time to visit the Dry Tortugas with raptor migration at its peak with Sharp-shinned, Cooper's and Broad-winged Hawks, Merlins, and Peregrine Falcons. There is also pelagic birding on the way down and back with chances of Bridled Tern, Roseate Tern, Brown Booby, Shearwaters, Jaegers and much more. It's quite the day; quite the trip.
