Fort DeSoto is a bird photography hotspot that has the potential to offer great opportunities to every day of the year. The big attractions at Fort DeSoto are shorebirds, all the large wading birds (including Roseate Spoonbill at various seasons), many species of terns, and gulls. In the spring you can photograph the breeding behaviors of Royal & Sandwich Terns and Laughing Gull.
Flight photography can be good when feeding sprees occur just off of the beach, featuring terns, gulls and Brown Pelican. Spring and fall migration can be excellent for all manner of warblers, vireos, gnatcatchers, tanagers, grosbeaks, and orioles in some of the wooded areas.
There are several good locations within an hour of DeSoto that can also offer some great opportunities: Sarasota and the Skyway Bridge Piers are also covered in this Site Guide. By purchasing the guide you will know exactly where to be on what tide and what wind.
