Martin County Florida
Scrub Jay Walk at Jonathan Dickinson State Park
20 Feb

This guided leisurely walk through the sand pine scrub is a great opportunity to learn about and view Florida scrub-jays. These birds found only in Florida, specifically in the scrub community, are not common and a special treat to see! Please contact the park’s visitor center for meeting location, 561-745-5551

The walk is between 1/4 and 1/2 mile in length, on gently rolling, open scrub terrain. There is no water or restrooms right there, and the walk can get hot quickly. The path is a well-documented spot where scrub jays have congregated for years, and the federally-threatened birds are seen on most outings – but not assured, they are wild animals. Any lightning close enough to hear thunder will cause immediate cancellation of the tour. Guide will also accentuate the Florida scrub ecosystem itself, how fire is essential, pointing out gopher tortoise burrows, and unique plants found only there, etc.
