South of St. Cloud in the wilds of Osceola County, the Three Lakes Wildlife Management Area and nearby Joe Overstreet Road offer unique birding opportunities.
Florida is home to more Bald Eagles than any other state outside of Alaska and this region may hold more Bald Eagles than any other area in Florida. Other species found here include: Red-cockaded Woodpecker, Snail Kite, Bachman's Sparrow, White-tailed Kite, Crested Caracara, Sandhill Cranes and occasionally Whooping Cranes. Although we may not see them, Three Lakes is an important habitat for the nearly extinct Florida Grasshopper Sparrow.
