Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary is open every day of the year.
What's your favorite birding site?
Living in Florida on the Gulf side, I'd say the Suncoast Seabird folks do an outstanding job at the sanctuary. A couple of places I enjoy bird watching is the free-flight aviary at Lowry Park Zoo and watching the birds dive, swoop, swim and frolic along the fishing and beach area on Gandy Beach which runs alongside the Gandy Bridge.
Best thing about this place is that it's free! I'm surprised the amount of different birds you can get to see. I visit the sanctuary every week during my weekly walk from North Reddington Beach up the beach to Suncoast. I hope they keep this place running as it is, and best of all, free of charge
It's free to enter but be sure you give a small donation. Best time to visit the Suncoast sanctuary is Spring. During March and April, you can see birds nesting and you can watch the babies mature. Evenings are especially good for photos as many birds come in to roost for the night.
