The Jennings Bluff Tract is one of the most northerly of the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail sites. It sits east of I-75 just south of the Georgia line off Highway 41. You may be better served stopping at the Florida Welcome Center and picking up the GFBWT Guide books rather than taking the detour to visit this remote and rustic site.

The site is claimed to be good for migrants in season and Telephoto Florida has no reason to doubt that. The difficulty we have with this site is it’s remoteness and return on investment. Although just a couple miles off of the interstate, to get there one traverses a long unpaved road surrounded by farmers’ fields. Once at the site and you clear any fallen trees from the entrance gate you can drive carefully along a narrow dirt road(?) that leads through upland hardwood forest to the Alapaha River. Once at the river the site it is somewhat picturesque, however, on this hot August day there was little birding activity anywhere to be had.

Be sure to bring plenty of water and bug spray. Do not attempt in wet weather as the road can get flooded and muddy. You would not want to get stuck out here. Oh, and did I mention to bring bug spray?
