Birding Opportunities
on the Eglin Reservation

All visitors to the Eglin reservation must have an Eglin permit.  

Whether you have a life-list or are just beginning as a birding enthusiast, Eglin reservation has some outstanding opportunities for you.  Check out our many different ecosystems for rare and special birds.  Have you ever seen a red-cockaded woodpecker family foraging?  Or great blue herons and snowy egrets gliding over the treetops?  If you're looking for a bit of color, keep your eyes open for summer tanagers and indigo buntings.  And don't forget to catch a glimpse of our coastal views, where American avocets and black skimmers can be observed.
