Despite some bad reviews we went to this place and were not disappointed. The guy that said he only spent 15 min. was crazy - you can't even drive through in that time (speed limit is 10mph). He obviously is not a birder. We were there almost 2 hours and saw crested caracara, northern harriers, white pelicans, bitterens, anhinga, cormorants, little blue herons, great blue herons, tri colored herons, glossy and white ibis, snowy egrets, red shouldered hawk, great egret, yellow rumpled warblers, palm warblers, sandhill cranes, phoebe, savannah sparrows, blue winged teals, grebe, ring necked ducks, black crowned night heron, moorhens, coots, red winged blackbirds, kingfisher, green heron and an alligator catching and eating a moorhen. That's a pretty good bird day! We were there Feb. 28th around 3 pm. Most people just drive around, but you can bike or walk it. Everyone with sense goes the posted speed limit and makes frequent stops so be prepared. If you're walking off the road watch out for the fire ant nests. Don't forget your binoculars. There is an outhouse type facility at start of road.
