If you are looking for a prime birding location in South Florida the Wakodahatchee Wetlands is the place to go. This site, near Delray Beach, on jog Road is ideal for birding at all times of the year and just may be one of the best Florida has to offer.
The three quarters of a mile boardwalk system allows you up close access to the wildlife and therefore, the location is a birder's paradise. Most of the birds are familiar with people so they are not as skittish as one would expect. The site is wheelchair accessible, offers plenty of parking and clean rest rooms.
Small islands around the park create wonderful nesting rookeries in the spring. The birds that nest here include, but are not limited to, Great Blue Heron, Anhinga, Great Egret, Snowy Egrets, Cattle Egrets, Cormorants, Green Heron, Roseate Spoonbill, and Little Blue Heron.
Telephoto Florida has seen American Bitterns, Sora, leucistic Grackles, red-winged blackbirds, limpkin, as well as a variety of woodpeckers.
It is open from 7 am till Dawn and will be suitable for visitors of all ages.
