A Birding Paradise

Extensive marshes remain along the lake’s western portions and the entire lake is home to significant numbers of aquatic birds, wading birds, and shorebirds.  Lake Okeechobee is one of the two most critical sites in Florida for the endangered Snail Kite.

In addition to herons, egrets, sandhill cranes, and wintering waterfowl, there are some especially exciting birds you may see on your Lake Okeechobee airboat tour!
