Citrus County is a Bird Watching Paradise

Crystal River and Citrus County are at the transition point where the sub-tropical climate of Florida and the temperate climate of North America briefly overlap. This convergence of climates combined with abundant habitat including fresh and saltwater and upland forest make Citrus County a paradise for migrating and resident birds. You won’t believe the variety and abundance of species, including the extremely rare Red-cockaded Woodpecker, when you know just where to look.
