Everglades National Park is a place of wonder and beauty.

Encompassing 1.5 million acres of a subtropical paradise that’s unique to South Florida, it’s the largest wilderness east of the Mississippi River, and the park is famous for its plethora of birds, from bald eagles to wood storks and roseate spoonbills.

Home also to the endangered Florida panther, black bears and Burmese pythons, Everglades National Park is truly expansive. It’s home to one of the most productive ecosystems on this continent, evidence by the sheer volume of wildlife that can be found here.

A reddish egret feeds in the shallows at Bunche Beach in Fort Myers. The species is one of more than 300 that make Everglades National Park the top spot for birding in the nation, a report says.

The park was recently named the best birding park in the nation by Travel Lens. With more than 300 bird species roaming the park, we decided to cut the list down to five extraordinary bird species that can be found in Everglades National Park.
