"Birding 101" with Arthur Sissman
Eagle Lakes Community Park
11565 Tamiami Trail E
Naples, Florida 34113
Limited to 15 participants
Join us for a morning of bird watching with Arthur Sissman. Arthur has been an avid birdwatcher in Southern Florida for 20 years and has led tours for local, national, and international visitors to Southwest Florida.
Enjoy the natural beauty of the marsh, spot and identify as many bird species as possible, learn names of local and migrant birds and observe their behavior, combine many eyes to see more birds than any one of us could see alone. Keep track and count how many species we can find.
Fee: $15 per person. Arthur Sissman is volunteering his time and the proceeds will be contributed to the Club.
Limited to 15 participants due to the nature of the event.
Location: Eagle Lakes Community Park, 11565 Tamiami Trail East, Naples, FL 34113
Listed as one of the top ten birding sites in Southwest Florida, the park is home to more than 160 species of birds. A 2.5-mile paved nature trail provides access to the lakes surrounding the park with good views of birds and other wildlife along the way. We can expect to see wading birds and ducks. We may also see raptors, eagles, and warblers.
Details: Meet in parking lot. When you drive into the park go to the round-about, go around the roundabout and park at the far end of the lot between the soccer fields on the right hand side.
Bring binoculars and a camera. Bring hat, sunscreen (no fragrance, please) and water.
Bathrooms are available in the small building near the baseball field.
