Birds & Wildlife of the Everglades
Trip Overview
The Everglades of South Florida is one of the most unique wilderness areas in the United States. The ‘River of Grass’ is made up of 1.5 million acres of subtropical wetlands – featuring lakes, rivers, mangrove forests, sawgrass marshes, and assorted wetlands. It runs from iconic Lake Okeechobee down to the southern tip of Florida.

Because of its large expanse and habitat diversity, the Everglades is home to an oasis of birds and wildlife. It protects 70 endangered or threatened species, including the American alligator, the manatee, the Florida panther, and many species of birds. The greater Everglades area is home to over 360 bird species, with standouts such as the roseate spoonbill, the glossy ibis, the wood stork, and a variety of egrets and herons.

Aside from the famous Everglades National Park, there are numerous protected areas that are fantastic for wildlife photography and viewing. Wildlife refuges and preserves surround the national park, providing world-class photography opportunities, there is even an Audubon sanctuary listed as one of the best places in America for birding.

Winter is an ideal time to visit the Everglades. Temperatures are mild, it’s dry, and mosquitoes are almost entirely absent. Large numbers of resident and transient birds can be found in the swamplands and other wildlife, such as alligators, coyotes, bobcats, and otters are active as well.

This workshop starts and ends in Ft. Myers, FL. Ft. Myers has a commercial international airport for easy access – Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW). Ft. Myers and Naples to the south are in the heart of many great birding locations and gives us quick access to the Everglades.

Lodging during the workshop includes excellent hotels, as well as great nearby dining options.

You’ll get ample one on one time with your instructor and improve your photography in one of the world’s great wildlife hotspots. Aside from the fun you’ll experience with your fellow photographers you’ll leave this trip with a highly expanded portfolio of excellent images and a wealth of memories. Join us today for the trip of a lifetime to photograph the birds and wildlife of South Florida’s Everglades!

  • A Great Experience!

    What a great experience! The trip was well-organized from start to finish. Great photography locations from deep jungle to beach to river boat to night hikes. The schedule kept us busy but never hectic, and the accommodations were super comfortable. Shout out to our guide Ben - we saw so much wildlife! I'd highly recommend a trip with them.


  • In October I traveled with BCJ to Joshua Tree Natl Park for their night sky photography trip. This was my third trip with BCJ and I just reserved another trip. I keep coming back to this company because of the great experiences I'm having. I love the small groups and excellent guides. 


  • This was my first trip with Backcountry Journeys. It was excellent, and I have since booked two more trips. The itinerary, and the guides were excellent.
