Florida, the Sunshine State, is a superb place to look for birds. The Everglades National Park includes vast areas of marshland, ideal for waterbirds, the Florida Keys offer species with a real Carribean flavour and the Dry Tortugas are the temporary home of thousands of nesting sea-birds and dozens of gorgeous-looking migrants. What makes Florida even more special is not only that many of its birds are found nowhere else in North America but also they are often exceptionally tame, providing fantastic opportunities for film-making.
