Orange Audubon Society will explore Three Lakes Wildlife Management Area and nearby Joe Overstreet Road in April. This exceedingly beautiful Osceola county area is a well-known birding hot spot. Bird species we may encounter include: Red-cockaded Woodpecker, Bachman’s Sparrow, Crested Caracara, White-tailed Kite, Snail Kite, Sandhill Cranes, waders, waterfowl and assorted passerines. Also, the nesting density of Bald Eagles in this area is one of the highest in the state.
Since this area is rather remote, participants are encouraged to bring drinks, snacks, lunch and sunscreen – there are no stores. Also, restroom facilities are limited. There is a fee of $6.00 per vehicle to enter Three Lakes WMA.
We will meet to carpool at 7:30 a.m. in the parking lot of Publix at 13900 Narcoossee Road, Orlando, FL 32832. For more information contact Lori Mathis [masked]).
