Not only is Florida a bird migration and overwintering hotspot, but it serves as a great entry point for those wanting to learn aboutsub-tropical and tropical species. Herons, egrets, and ibises congregate in shallow wetlands, often alongside overwintering sandpipers and stilts. The state bird Northern Mockingbird is one of over 530 bird species that are either permanent residents, regular breeders, or annual migrants. To connect more deeply with Florida's rich avian life, it helps to have a place to start, and the beautifully illustrated reference Florida Birds is the ideal tool for that. It includes 140 of the most common and familiar species as well as an ecoregion map showing over 20 bird-finding hotspots. Laminated for durability, this 12-panel pocket folding guide is the perfect companion for educators, learners, naturalists, and birders looking to better acquaint themselves with Florida's birds and the fascinating lives they lead. Made in the USA.
