This is also the probably the best location east of the Mississippi to see both Swainson's Hawks and Short-tailed Hawks during migration.  Come visit the research and education staff of the Florida Keys Raptor Migration Project at Curry Hammock State Park (Mile Marker 56, Overseas Highway) between September 15 and November 13 each year to observe this exciting migration for yourself.

    ....Trip Report: Orlando, Florida "Birding with the Mouse", by Andy
      Benson. In August 2001 and May 2003 our family holidays took us to that ultimate tourist destination, Orlando. Birding was not a high  priority in their minds but was uppermost in mine, especially as it was to be my first visits to the other side of the pond. What  follows will probably be of more help to a birder in a similar situation to myself, where holiday locations are based more on family requirements rather than species diversity!
    ....Trip Report: Florida, USA - January 2003, by Andy Wraithmell. 
      This was our second trip to Florida. If like me you are a keen photographer then take plenty of film, to be honest I could have taken twice as many shots as I did. The best reserves for photography were J N Ding Darling NWR, Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, Everglades NP and Wakodahatchee Wetlands Reserve (especially for Sora).
    ....Birding South Florida - March 13 - 19, 2001. By Stefan Tewinkel. 
      This excellent trip report includes an illustrated species list. March is not the best season for birdwatching in Florida since some birds arrive much later, nevertheless I saw a lot of interesting birds and missed little. The weather was warm and excellent with absoultely no rain at the places I visited. On the other hand South Florida is suffering from a severe drought with only very few mosquitos but also less birds.
    ....Florida Trip Report: April - May 2004, by Paul Wetton. The year 2004
      saw our first visit to the USA with a three week vacation in Florida on a Fly Drive with Virgin Atlantic. All in all I enjoyed the visit to Florida even though it involved a lot of travelling around. I didn't see as many birds as I had expected, mainly because of the lack of migrants. I think I would have been pretty disappointed without the visit to the Tortugas. My advice to anyone visiting Florida at the time that we did would be to spend as much time in the areas where you find a lot of birds such as the Blackpoint Wildlife Drive, Corkscrew Swamp and The Dry Tortugas, unless there are good falls of migrants.
    ....Florida Trip Reports - a number of Florida trip reports are available
      from Blake Maybank's "Birding the Americas - Trip Report and Trip Planning Repository".

North American Specialities in Florida

Information derived from Sibley & Monroe checklists in Thayer's Birder's Diary - Version 2.5.
These counts will differ in minor ways from counts based on the ABA classification,
but an international checklist system was required to enable world-wide
country to country comparisons.These speciality birds may be uncommon, or extremely rare
at this location, or may only be present in migration. However, documented sightings of each species
noted below have been made in this location. Species highlighted in bold italic print have
ONLY been found in this state of the US.  Consult the Breeding Bird Survey or
Christmas Bird Count data on the Patuxent Wildlife Research Center website
to determine the "best" place to see each bird. Species printed in blue are endangered.
