Learn to identify the common birds of south Florida, one of the TOP 10 birding destinations in the U.S. This class will focus on one of our specialties-Wading Birds. These birds commonly and easily seen everywhere on canal banks and wetlands, but all the white wading birds can be confusing.

March 1 — Birding by Habitat, 2-5 pm
I say birds are creatures of habitat. One of the best ways to find the birds you seek is know what habitat where they can be found. Some birds are very specific like Scrub Jays and some more general like Northern Mockingbirds. Learn what birds are likely to be found in the incredible variety of Florida's natural habitats. The class will include an informative power point, numerous hand outs and a walk around the garden to look for birds in various habitats. Bring binoculars, and a field guide (if possible can be provided upon request).

***IF YOU NEED HELP IDENTIFYING A BIRD***

In order for your me to help you in identifying your birds you need to be specific and give more details and information. Examples-does a bird have a pointed beak (warbler) or thicker seed eating beak (sparrow)? Where did you see it? High in a tree or low to the ground? Size-sparrow sized or larger-cardinal size?

Remember watch the bird carefully and record any and all information you can-size, shape, feeding behavior, habitat-marsh, forest, shoreline, place found- shrub, tree, water's edge, etc., any special field marks-wing bar, eye rings, color on tail, etc.. in order to help us identify the bird. Watch it as long as you can before it flies away.

Take the information you have observed and recorded in field notes and look in the book for possibilities. If you have an idea what you think it might be, this helps us eliminate possibilities and narrow down what it might be. I hope this is helpful.
