Bird Watching at Amelia Island

At Amelia Island State Park, the plethora of birds share time with other rare wildlife such as the rare Right Whale, but the park also is a very popular place for viewing shore birds such as Black Skimmers, piping plovers, terns (including the threatened least tern), brown pelicans, and many other birds who make their home in the park. Be on the lookout for a Bald Eagle, which now make their home on the island year-round.

Please obey posted signs that protect critical shore bird nesting areas.

Amelia Island State Park is one of the premier sites along the eastern section of the Great Florida Birding Trail. If you would like to know more about Florida's birding opportunities, visit Great Florida Birding Trail.
