Did you know that Naples is right in the path of a flyway for bird migration that is one of the most widely-traveled by birdlife worldwide? And, that makes it a major rest stop for migrating birds of all kinds, shapes, and sizes. Well, sure, that means that the winter months are perfect for seeing a huge variety of birds, however, in Naples in the spring, the birds are not only plentiful, but they’re also quite easy to approach. After all, they know a true bird-lover when they see one.
The fact is that there’s just no place as ideal for bird-watching and just plain wildlife-watching as Naples and especially Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park. Bird photographers from around the world fall in love with the park for its many amazing photographic opportunities. From Great Blue, Green, and Black-crowned Night Herons to both the Great and Snowy Egrets, Common Moorhen, the White and Glossy Ibis, and Double-Crested Cormorants. As well as woodpeckers and mottled ducks, you can see and hear them flying right over your head any day of the week, especially just before sunrise.
With 199 acres on the Gulf, there’s no place quite like Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park for nature lovers. It’s one of those places where you can see something different every time you visit. And, that’s just one of the many things that make the experience one that is so beautiful to behold. It’s an experience that is as real as it gets and always fresh and new no matter how many times you come back. And, you will come back because it’s an irresistibly fascinating place full of wonder and birddlife and it is also ever-changing while still being intrinsically the same.
