Ulumay Wildlife Sanctuary

Merritt Island, FL

The Ulumay Wildlife Sanctuary borders the Banana River and a portion of Sykes Creek in Merritt Island, Florida. Arrive early and walk the trail or sit on the benches overlooking the Banana river.

There is a great birding trail within the sanctuary. The south bound portion of the trail leads past an overlook that is about 25 yards from an Osprey nest platform. This overlook should offer some great birding and photography opportunities during the nesting season, late winter and spring.

The north bound trail section wanders past several impoundments and several dense undergrowth areas. The wetlands offer some excellent birding opportunities for Osprey, Eagle, Heron, Egrets and waterfowl. The trail also offers very good songbird viewing during the fall and spring migrations.

These trails do not loop back to the entry point, so you will backtrack over the same ground when you return to the entrance.

When the water levels are high be sure to bring and use insect repellent.

Things to See:

The ducks listed above are typically seen during the fall and winter seasons.
