A visit to the STAs 5/6…


STAs, which stands for Stormwater Treatment Areas, are constructed wetlands,  located on approximately 17,000 acres in eastern Hendry County, FL. The Stormwater Treatment Area 5/6 (STA-5/6) has become one of the premier bird-watching areas in Florida through a long-standing partnership with the Hendry-Glades Audubon Society.

An interesting fact about Red-shouldered Hawks is that they return to the same nesting territory year after year. One Red-shouldered Hawk occupied a territory in southern California for 16 consecutive years. http://www.allaboutbirds.com
