Course Information

Know Your Florida Birds

Learn the best tools and resources needed to help identify birds and what field marks to look for when identifying birds. We will spend three classes in the field practicing our newly learned skills and using those tools. Finally, we will spend our last class at one of the top birding spots in Florida--Fort De Soto--looking for seasonal migrants.

We also will learn about "citizen science" projects and conservation issues regarding Florida birds. Note: class meetings are at varied locations an may require long walks. Field trips may require an hour's drive: expect class meetings will run into the afternoons.
