Upper Keys Exploration Van Tour

Broadwing Hawk kettle SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 29
7:00 am - 5:00 pm ($90)
Leader Paddy Cunningham

The Upper Keys is a unique environment harboring some of the rarest animals in the U.S. This is one of the best places to look for Mangrove Cuckoo and Black-whiskered Vireo in the tropical hardwood hammocks. Windley Key State Historical Site has shady trails which could be full of migrating warblers and songbirds. Anne's Beach on a low tide can be super for shorebirds and Reddish Egret. A stop at secret shoreline is the best in the Middle Keys for shorebirds. We search for kettles of migrating hawks along the way.
