BIRD WATCHING...

Bird watching is excellent with up to 200 varieties spotted annually. Bird activity is greatest March through September, migratory birds peak April and May. During this period 100,000 Noddy and Sooty Terns nest on nearby Bush Key. Throughout the year magnificent Frigate birds, Boobies, Brown Pelicans, Double-Crested Cormorants, White Tailed Tropic Birds and many varieties of land and water birds can be spotted. During the spring migration we can supply up to date birding lists. John James Audubon first visited the Dry Tortugas in 1832. The area was made a marine sanctuary in 1908. Bring along your binoculars and scopes
