A rare Short-tailed Hawk soars above the Everglades in the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge. These tropical hawks are found in Central and South America and Florida. Florida's population is roughly 500, dining on smaller birds that they capture by plunging upon them from above.


The long-legged Black-necked Stilt takes advantage of the end of the dry season (Dec-May) and nests on exposed mud flats where their eggs are well camouflaged. As the rainy season kicks in, a nest of four Stilt eggs becomes buoyant, delicately floating in the shallow marshes of the Everglades. So...

A Wood Stork stands surrounded by floating Water Hyacinth (non-native) plants. The long beak of North America's only native stork is used to probe shallow water and mud for fish, amphibians and small reptiles.

American Beautyberries (Callicarpa americana) are ripening in the Everglades. People can eat the sweet purple berries in small amounts and they are enjoyed by birds, deer and raccoons who help spread the seeds.

A beautiful 5-lined Skink rests on a moss-covered limb of a Strangler Fig - which itself is wrapped around a Bald Cypress. This diurnal lizard feeds on insects, primarily grasshoppers and is occasionally spotted on the nature walk during our tours.

Picked up right in front of our condo. From the start you knew that Marc knew what he was doing and where he planned on taking us. Even though there were only 3 of us he shared all that he knew with us as though we were one. He engaged each of us in all of the conversations. Did not bring his personal life in to the discussions. Always on time and did not rush anyone. We will be coming back in 3 years with our granddaughter for her graduation. You can have the Orlando and all of the commercialism. You can't beat a trip through or on the Everglades with Marc.

Wonderful day! Our tour guide Zack was informative and friendly. We saw so many birds, alligators and wonderful foliage and more with full interesting descriptions from Zack. It was a windy day and we couldn't go on the final boat ride and museum. But Zack handled it well with another impromptu air boat ride through the mangrove trees . Great lunch at an out of the way resteraunt on the water. Group was about 12. A nice size. We would love to do the trip again next time we're out this way! 5 stars!!
