    There is a great new South Florida birding location called Devils Garden Bird Park.

    Plenty of Snail and Swallow-tail Kites, and a one-eyed jack (well a one-eyed red shoulder hawk)

    Nice shots. Funny bit about the one-eyed jack. I'll be staying near Everglades City next week for vacation. We'll be driving down. Is this park on the way when we pass through Naples?

    Thanks. Not on the way between Naples and Everglades city, but a straight shot from Everglades city. It is a fee based location but $35 FOR A 3.5 hr golf cart trip through 7000 acres of old Florida is a wonderful experience.

    Nice shots Gavin, esp like the full mouth. This is a new place for me. I roam through that general area but did not know about the tours. Give me an email if you get time.
