Bird Walk for Beginners: Fort Caroline / Spanish Pond (Jacksonville)

Leader: Jody Willis (904-874-4204) **Walk starts at 10 am.
Duval Audubon is again leading monthly walks for novice birders at the Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve. Of course, experienced birders are welcome too!
Spanish Pond is a great migration hot spot – part of the National Park Service’s Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve; some of the last untouched coastal habitat in northeast Florida. We will bird around the Fort Caroline area as well as the Spanish Pond boardwalk. We might see painted buntings, early migrant warblers, a number of woodpecker species, and possibly some vireos.
Meet at Fort Caroline National Memorial’s Visitor’s Center first. Notify the ranger if you need to borrow binoculars.
Meeting place: Visitors Center at Fort Caroline; 12713 Fort Caroline Road, Jacksonville, FL.
